Sending email outside my Domain within Sharepoint

I have a sharepoint list that our Logistic company will access after connecting to our VPN.  This company is not part of our domain at all,  I want to setup an alert in the list to notify them when a new request has been added to the list.  How could I setup the alert to send the email to his address at the other company? my domain is goblue.com,  I want sharepoint to the send the email to Will@theExpert.com.  could this be done?

Thank you.

You would need to create an active directory contact with his infromation. Then from sharepoint you can use this to send the notification.
