Send SMTP Email should be done by Orchestrator, not the local machine

Currently when using Send SMTP Email, it’s the local machine on which the job is running that makes the SMTP connection to send the email.

This should be done at the Orchestrator level. The activity should send a command to Orchestrator to send the email via SMTP. This would alleviate having to manage permissions/firewall/proxy etc settings on each individual client machine - we would only have to make sure our one Orchestrator on-premise server can connect to the SMTP server.

Interesting take on the activity @postwick, it spans across many of our teams (Mail activity package, Orchestrator, maybe even Integration Service).
