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.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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