I have tried both; editing SystemGlobals.properties and through admin console (which updated jforum-custom.conf) with smtp host and port info with no authn. However, the test send mail always failed with "java.net.SocketException: Software caused connection abort: connect". I've dumped the whole trace and there is nothing particular about it; simply couldn't create the socket.
On the same system, I also tried using Thunderbird to verify the smtp host, port and it got through okay.
Any suggestion? Thanks!

It is working now. I don't know how I got the test app to work which mislead me. It turns out changing McAfee settings took care of the problem after all. I didn't try that first because I thought I didn't have privilege to do that in this production system.
