"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

do you mean to say that Sharepoint 2013 is On premises and exchange is on O365/ Exchange Online?

No, exchange is in an entirely different forest. Used access via different AD account. I need to see what will work from an email perspective for sharepoint if there is no local email system.

The answer to the sharepoint question appears to be no it cannot use an account. A local relay can be enabled to 365 though
