you cannot trigger external commands from within watcher (the functionality is not added, but would also be rejected by the java security manager, that is enabled in elasticsearch itself).
However you do not need to have an external mail server to connect to (like gmail, exchange, etc). Your
Thanks Alex, configured as generic email pointing to the smtp server used by linux mail. Works like a charm.
