How can I change this script so that it can send out emails using Outlook365?

Good day.
I would like to change this powershell script to enable me to send an email with an attachment out from a computer.
I am not sure that the reference to the smtp for office 365 is correct.
And I also feel that port 587 and TLS is a requirement, however I am not sure.

Any helps is greatly appreciated.
Regards,

You cannot send unauthenticated mail using smtp.office365.com. Use a licensed account and provide credentials:

Send-MailMessage -From user@domain.com -To joe@mail.com -SmtpServer smtp.office365.com -UseSsl -Port 587 -Subject $subject -Body $MessageBody -Credential $cred -BodyAsHtml -Attachment 'C:\Attachment\123.pdf'

Thanks, then in that case I want to embed the credentials in this script.
How can I do that.

There are multiple methods to store/reuse credentials, here's an example from one of my articles: https://www.michev.info/Blog/Post/1220/
