WordPress and Office365


So learning more about Office365 as I figure out certain things. My church hosts it’s website on WordPress and had to figure out how to get emails to send from an Office365 hosted email address. We worked with our awesome web developer and he was stumped. Did what he could and contacted our form plugin software maker and tried to see if they had anything on it. We struggled for a while and figured out it was Office365 blocking them to prevent spam.

So here is the link with the money: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn554323.aspx

It walked me through creating a SMTP Relay and that was all we needed. We know have our WordPress sending emails through our Office365 Email address. Posting this in case anyone else happens to search for WordPress and Office365. It was a chore finally finding the right reference and getting it to work!
