Yes, if you have a support contract with Fortinet run this through them as a call.
If you do not have one I would get one.

I would recommend using Mimecast and then to Nat that through your firewall securely.

Otherwise you can make a bad choice and send and receive internet directly over the internet through your ISP smtp server.

The second solution is pretty bad, the only reason I am suggesting it is because other people will do so just to get points.

Natting on Fortigate device

Also just to be clear the Fortigate will protect your exchange or mail server externally internet facing wise, not internally, if you want an internal firewall use a 3rd party product or windows firewall.
