connection is established but packets are not flowing

Dear Experts

CRM system work flow triggers emails to the prospect email account as and when the prospect statues changes via the SMTP server ( without password that is without authentication as it is Relay server hosted locally-office 365 mail protection ). We could see the connection to the email server getting established but no packets sent/received , but through telnet we can send and receive mails by making use of from and to email commands through the telnet session, can you help where the things are going wrong. following SL2 cases it works but SL3 it does not work.
1. though telnet to the smtp server with FROM and TO commands it works that is mail is delivered to the TO addressed account.
2. though CRM system configure email settings with email account, smtp and port without the SMTP authentication mail is getting delivered to the To account.
3. CRM system through workflow trigger email on each status changes mail is not getting delivered instead we can see connection is ESTABLISHED to the smtp server

using offfice 365 SMTP relay to send mails to the external users though the CRM application, i,e option 3 in the following URL
Important observation
1. we observed the  CRM system workflow triggers emails when port 80 opened for the CRM system at the gateway/firewall level, the CRM system gets connected to internet to  crl.globalsign.com  and from the it connects to office365 smtp.
2. when we disable access to external network i,e port 80 http blocked for CRM system at gateway/firewall then emails does not flow ,
3. we only allowed CRM system can talk to crl.globalsign.com  then emails are getting triggered.
can you please help me understand how this office365 is working when it is configured to the CRM system. is it essential that CRM system to be allowed to talk to crl.globalsign.com . please suggest.
