Email concept from devices

Dear Experts,

one of contractor technicians put a device on the network and the device is sending emails to our common mailbox. Can you please explain to me how is he able to set the email portion on the device and what are the requirements. I will have more devices soon and I want to do the same thing.

The device is an environment monitoring device?

The device will be given internal IP and an email address to send alerts. I don't know what else to explain I just want a way to have this done. That's why I am here to get guidance.
Ok.. so create an receive connector on your Hub transport server and allow device's IP in this. then you will be able to send e-mail from device.

FOllow this article to create Relay/receive connector.

And to allow anonymous if need follow this guide.

Does the email need to be created as a mailbox or can I just put any email like alert@domain.com.

I am sorry guys I am still learning how to do things. But this is something I need so it can send alerts to a comman IT mailbox.
Better you create mailbox for Alert@domain.com, if you are sending e-mails to outside of org. It will help you to recognize your domain externally, also if required authentication. You can hide this mailbox from GAL.

Note that these alert will go to outside company individuals.Here what I will do after reading all the comments. Amit and stuart a big thank u.

on the device:

I assign the device ip address on the LAN. On the email tab I put an email address alert@domain.Com.

Under SMTP tab I will put the ip address and port 25.

On the exchange server:

I will go to the transport hub --create a new receiving connector and add the ip address of the device.

Is there any thing else to it?
You need to select the correct option under the permissions group tab on your new receive connector, in your case anonymous.
