I need to configure email for puppet enterprise to be able to send notifications when nodes have changed its configuration. I guess I need to configure the SMTP server using the following link but still not sure how to configure the report when something fails and customize the information that should be notified on email.

If someone can provide some detail on how to configure email for puppet would be nice.

The email notification in Puppet Enterprise is handled via tagmail. You can find the documentation for that here, as well as documentation on tags

However, if you don't wish to use tagmail (and I wouldn't blame you for that), it is pretty easy to create a custom report processor that can email you about various events and do so much more. You can find some documentation and example processors here.
