Does fdm is able to deliver a mail through remote smtp server?

I read the manual shipped with fdm source but it is still uncelar for me.
I understand fdm fetches mails and delivers to local mailboxes.
But I have a mail account on a remote smtp server. This my default account.
For incoming and outgoing messages. Usually I use https to read or to send mails.
I want to create a local client - with applications like mutt, mail etc.

At this moment I fetch mails with fetchmail. I tried to deliver mails on SMTP using sendmail
but it doesn't work (a dynamic IP? non-default port?). So I started to look for something simpler
- sendmail is more than discouraging. I found qmail, exim and fdm.

Any help are very welcomed. About any of subjects (qmail, sendmail,fdm, exim)
