  • Yes, you need to setup email in Central Administration - then you can send to anyone.

    Central Administration -> System Settings - > Configure outgoing e-mail settings.

  • Hi NajeebUllah, as long as your SMTP server is allowed to send email to external email addresses (i.e. outside your domain address) it should be working.

    Note that you have to configure outgoing email settings in system settings of central admin (as described by John) for any sharepoint sites related notifications to work. Plus PWA email notification settings for Project Server alerts/notification emails to work. you will find this option in Central Admin -> General Application Settings -> PWA settings -> Alerts and Reminders

    Hope this helps.
