Although I am still not receiving the email alerts, I managed to have the "accepted" mailserver command. It seems I am behind a huge firewall and this server only works locally, that was why they were asking me to use POP to send the alerts.

I guess the only other way would be to open up a port and specify this in the mailserver right?

You need to be able to connect to a smtp mail server that is able to deliver the alerts to the mail server which is handling your mail box.

It may as well be localhost, if you could connect to the outside world via tcp port 25. For example, if you can do:

telnet 25

from your monit box, then you should be OK.

If not, you have to find a smtp server on your network which can connect to the outside world.
