There is no custom setup required beyond a standard LAMP server. You can use PHPMailer to send messages via your office365 account.

Once you have PHPMailer you can use code like what’s shown below to send your messages:

$mail = new PHPMailer(true);
$mail->Host = "";
$mail->Port       = 587;
$mail->SMTPSecure = '';
$mail->SMTPAuth   = true;
$mail->Username = "email";   
$mail->Password = "password";
$mail->SetFrom('email', 'Name');
$mail->addReplyTo('email', 'Name');
$mail->SMTPDebug  = 2;
