Q: why does vcenter sendmail fail?

I would like to receive some alerts by email but it does not work. There seem to be several possible root causes, but I don't understand where exactly it faisl and what I need to fix to get it to work. Here is the log:

vpxd 7711 - - Event [1053338] [1-1] [2023-10-26T18:03:03.703904Z] [vim.event.AlarmEmailCompletedEvent] [info] [] [] [1053338] [Alarm 'User login' on Datacenters sent email to alarm@my.net]

Did you find any resolution to this? I am having the same issue and am curious if it has to do with vCenter not having a SSL cert signed by an external CA.
