Under wss3 users set alerts, we configured the server to point to our SMTP server (on a separate) box and that worked. But under Central Admin 2010, is displayed "outbound email has not been configured" as a critical item. Why is this a "critical" item? We don't use emailed-enabled Lists or Libraries and under Central Admin>Outgoing E-Mail Settings" it shows the name of our (remote) email server as well as the from and reply addresses.

if you don't configure outbound email setting then you will not be able to get any alert or email from the server. By default sharepoint says it is critical.
Just configure the outgoing email in your server then this alert should be removed.

Actually we see no reason to configure outgoing mail..... we simply have used the name of our local email server and users are receiving Alerts as expected
