When you are connected to vCenter Server, using the vSphere Client.

Select Administration > vCenter Server Settings > Mail

and populate the SMTP Server and email address  scom@company.com


Mail Sender Settings
You will also need to define, the Recipient Alarm Settings, in the Actions for each Alarm.

Do this at the ROOT level, select vCenter Server host, and then select Alarms Tab, Definitions.

and make sure your Add a "Send a notification email" Action.
