How to configure smtp service for Sharepoint server?

This is using MS Sharepoint Server 2013. Lots of structures, for documents, read-out have been built. However, we nearly forget about the email alerts and notifications. btw, where and how should I configure this email using smtp?

We subscribed to MS Office 365 for Exchange Online. We are thinking of make use of the existing user mailbox, called sharepoint@aaa.com that subscribed to office 365, so as, all mail alerts are send out by this mailbox. So, the address for office 365 is, smtp.office365.com, right?
and this smtp is using port 587, tls enabled? btw, where should I configure the smtp setting?

Thanks in advance.

I browse to Central Admins >system settings > outgoing e-mail settnigs:

    shall i put in this way?

    Outgoing smtp server - smtp.office365.com
    From address - sharepoint@aaa.com
    reply-to address - sharepoint@aaa.com
    Character set - 65001

But just wondering, how can I send a test mail? and where should I put in the email credentials?
