Can SMTP run without a user logged in?

I don't think this is a good idea.
What kind of user could forgot the password? Maybe he should do something to improve his memory.

I disagree. I think this is a good ideal with a slight change. The first time the user connects to the internet they are asked if they would like to enable this feature. At this point they are asked for their email addresses, more than one can be recorded and for answers to secret questions to make it more secure. e.g First Pet, First Car, Favourite Colour etc...
