This is true only if the smtp server that you use is run by the ISP, otherwise it would be known as "an open relay".  There is a very large number of users who use an smtp server NOT at their ISP. For example, many mobile users who mail whilst travelling. To avoid re-configuring their email client they use (like me) an authenticated SMTP server using SSL to ensure no snooping of the password.
