Depends on what exactly you mean. Have you looked into using a shared mailbox or Office 365 Group?

You can create a Shared Mailbox on Office 365 for no-reply and just do not give a license.

If i create a shared mailbox or group with no members, what do i use to setup the SMTP on a device?

You never mentioned you want to use it on an SMTP device...

For that scenario, you either need a licensed O365 mailbox, or SMTP relay. Read here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/exchange/mail-flow-best-practices/how-to-set-up-a-multifunction-device-or-application-to-send-email-using-office-3

If using it on a device, then you will most likely want authenticated access to allow authenticated mail via SMTP . On the device you can then specify the SMTP server ie smtp.office365.com:587 with the mailbox username, password and email address. This will require using a Office 365 license e.g. Exchange Online only license.
