I am very new to magento, but I have experience websites and networks, but I cannot figure this out.
I installed Magento using the Azure VM Build (so on Ubuntu). I have worked my way through a number of issues regarding upgrading and dependencies. But I am not able to configure my email setting to get them to work, or install extensions (an SMTP extension would fix this I think).
My email is all Office365 so I require SSL to send through SMTP, which isn't an option for Magento.
I have install ssmtp and configure it to use SSL and could get that to work.
I have also tried setting up an SMTP Relay to bypass the authentication but that also failed.
I was was wondering if anyone else has a similar setup to mine (Azure VM, Magento 2.1.1) and has been able to get set up there Office365 email with it.
