you need to configure the SMTP settings with the adres of your email server. If you don;t have DNS running, then you might need to put its IP address in.

You also need of course to have the address that it uses to send "from", this does not need to haver an account on your mail server.

The address to send to would be your email address

You need to have an email address already created from which you want the emails to come from.  After that, open up the vSphere client and connect to vCenter.  Then, along the top, click "Administration".  It's up next to "File", "Edit", & "View".  Then click on "vCenter Server Settings".  The 5th setting down is titled "Mail".  HEre's where you enter your SMTP server and sending address.  The, when you create a task, for example, and set it up to send a email on completion, it will use these settings.  You'll need to give it a valid address to send "To" when you create the task.
