OSX (10.4.1) SOCKS Proxy problem

When I activated the SOCKS proxy ( port 9050), I could no longer send smtp email via my email client (MS Entourage 2k4). Called my isp, and aside from being impressed that I had checked my email from 18 different class A IP addresses, they could see no request from me to even attempt to conect and send from my account. Turned off the SOCKS proxy and everything worked fine again. I do run the OS X firewall and have set it up to be open but upon further reading, that looks like it only opens for receive not send. So, how do I "punch a hole"? Or, am I just missing the boat on something. All other tor function works fine.

There are not any exit nodes that allow smtp outbound. Therefore, you will not be able to send smtp mail via tor.
