I have installed the Visual studio Power tools and tried configuring TFS server for E-Mail Configuration, Where we have to specify the SMTP server IP. Because of security concern we are not allowed to target the SMTP sever directly and its not enabled for us. Is there any other alternative where in, I can configure E-mail notification without specifying the SMT server .

Es gibt nur eine SMTP Schnittstelle.
Aber innerhalb eines Server Netzwerkes ist SMTP doch kein Sicherheitsrisiko.... vor allem wenn man dem SMTP nur Verbindungen von spezifischen IPs zulässt.

You need an SMTP server to send emails. There's no way around it.
Either configure your mailserver to accept emails from the TFS service account or the TFS Server's IP Address. Alternatively you could install the IIS SMTP Service on a server (the TFS Server for example) and configure that to only accept email from the TFS Server's IP Address.
