Windows 7: Server 2008 Task to Send Mail

Windows 7 Pro x64
Server 2008 Task to Send Mail

I'm trying to get my Windows Server 2008 R2 to send an email when a task completes (running a batch file). Although I cannot seem to get it to work at all.

This is a coporate environment that has an two DC's an Exchange server and a File Server. I have a task to run a batch file every hour and I'm trying to get an email when that completes. I created a separate task to troubleshoot and currently looks like:

Although I get an Action Failed Event Error:

I've tried to alter the user who is running the task (admin(s), SYSTEM) and trying many different types of SMTP Server names/formats, i.e. 'server.domain.local', 'server.domain', 'server', 'ip address', ''. Several people online suggested checking if Integrated Windows Authentication is enabled on the Default Receive Connector, but it already is!

I cannot for the life of me figure out what is going wrong with this as it should be working just fine! Can anyone please help me?
I DO NOT want a workaround or to download an application like Blat.
