You just need a server with a public static ip address

any one can spoof any email address.

register a domain name with a registar and then get basic hosting somewhere with email included

Send it through your email provider.
For example:
your website is  yourwebsite.com

You can host it anywhere. you will be having email address for the domain ex(info@yourwebsite.com)

you can use your email server to send mails(with proper user name and password). It will not be spammed.

if your application is written in php then you can use phpmailer instead of raw php mail function
