change root / other users email address
 
how can I change the root or other users email adresses that alerts are sent to?

I think you are talking about /etc/aliases
There is an example at the bottom of the file.
Code:

# Person who should get root's mail
#root:                marc

so is it possible to use emails hosted outside the server? like
Code:

# Person who should get root's mail
root:        mygoogle@gmail.com
ftpuser: mygoogle@gmail.com

Yes, I think that will work.
