Hi pretheesh.j, welcome on board :)

Sorry I don't understand your question, can you describe exactly the desired behaviour?
- Which event should send the email
- When
- Who should receive
- Etc

Also, "alert" to me looks a lot like "announcement". The Announcement function is already included in the course menu; creating an announcement already sends an e-mail, provided you configure it under "event manager".

Moving to more appropriate thread

I also have the same problem,
I want the LMS to send registration info to outside domains (e.g. mike@yahoo.com) if that is the mail a new user entered to register and not internally registered students or users within the system.

Where do I configure SMTP and POP information in Forma LMS?

to send emails, formalms can use
a) the server native sendmail (default setting ) , you must have installed a sendmail programm on the server
b) an external smtp server (with or without) authentication: set the rilevant information in config.php file. you must download edit and upload the file from your webserver

forma does not need to receive emails , so there is no pop3 configuration
