PC would in turn send that data out over whatever mechanism is available.
PC will try to directly reach the destination (or use your configured proxy). If those mechanisms don't succeed, then it will send data using the configured SMTP server. You can find more info in the Prism Central guide here: https://portal.nutanix.com/#/page/docs/details?targetId=Prism-Central-Guide-Prism-v511:mul-support-pulse-recommend-pc-c.html

Make sure that there is NO manual proxy configuration in the PE.
Here is the official documentation:
The logic on the PE looks like the following:
