SMTP Relay for Internal Server Infrastructure?

I'm sorry for the simple question, but I've gotten turned around with the terms of "SMTP Relay."

I'm pretty sure I'm looking to setup a SMTP Relay for my server infrastructure.  This relay wont be used by my users (or even public), instead it's intended to be available for my internal infrastructure servers with their service accounts and appropriate alerts.  

Background:
In 30 days we will be migrating to Gmail from our current email vendor.  Before that change happens I will be redeploying a new domain which brings all new infrastructure servers.  I don't want to setup the infrastructure knowing that I will have to redirect the email alerts on all the servers in 30 days.

Request:
I'd like to setup an infrastructure SMTP Relay where all of my infrastructure alerts can be centralized.  Then they would be passed onto the vendor to be processed as a normal email.  Maybe a guide or something?

In my mind I would then only need to change the relay settings upon the email vendor change.  Am I correct in this thinking?

Environment:
- All infrastructure servers = 2008R2

I suppose at the end you know your infrastructure better than anyone, you can set it up and test it.

Here is a youtube video on how to set up an SMTP relay.

While this does explain how to setup an SMTP relay, it didn't satisfy how to consolidate the mail locally before sending it out.
