Office 365 OutBound Connector on Port 26


I'm trying to setup an Outbound Connector on Office 365 to route email to a separate office email server. The second email server is a linux based IMAP/SMTP server and has SMTP set on Port 26. Email addresses will all be using the same domain on Office 365 and the office based mail server.

I see previously you could use set-sendconnector to set the outbound port sending from Office 365. This doesn't appear to be available now after updates and the send connector powershell command looks to have become set-outboundconnector

I have an Office 365 Business Premium account, is the functionality restricted in this version?

Any pointers in the right direction would be much appreciated.

Set-SendConnector is for on-prem servers only, in EO you have to use Set-OutboundConnector indeed. And no, there isnt any option to specify the port afaik, it's a general limitation for EO and not the plan you are using.
