Hello, can you please explane me what "smarthosting/routing" is, and how does it works?

Smarthosting is sending ALL your outgoing mail to one server and letting that server take care of delivery. Normally your mail server would connect directly to your recipient's mail server and transfer the message. Using a smarthost, your mail server connects to the smarthost and relays all messages through that server.

You set this in the courier esmtproutes file. So to send ALL your outgoing mail through your isp's mail server, "mail.myisp.com", you would enter the following into your courier's esmtproutes file:

: mail.myisp.com

Check out the 'courier' man page for more information. Search on 'smarthost'.
