    Seems fairly clear, but in the help section of Microsoft 365 a lot of people are trying to configure SMTP for wordpress through several plug-ins. MS tech support folks are replying as if there is a solution.

    Instead are you saying that it is not possible to use a wordpress plug-in to set up SMTP so that emails can be sent from a 365 email account?

    I have environment in which many applications and devices sending emails to my organization and external users. How can i achieve this using O365 SMTP? I cant authenticate all the devices. So i cant use client submission I want to send email to external addresses. So i cant use direct send. I am left with SMTP relay. I am not sure i can just create a connector and just add my firewall Public IP address to receive emails on O365 and to send to external addresses.
