1) Make a secret subdomain like: notifications-x7p8nx.it-simplified.com and don't give it out.

2) Have mail for that domain go directly to your back-end server

3) Configure all your monitoring tools to send to an address in that domain

4) Configure your back-end server to properly handle mail for that domain.
