Public mail provider as a SMTP-server

I want to set up such configuration where all SAPConnect email to external eddresses are sent using some of the publicly available mail providers (i.e. which is now being migrated to Office365 platform, Gmail, Chinese, Amazon SES etc.) Especially I am interested in Amazon SES!

I searched plenty of archive threads and similar issues were raised concerning:

I also tried the configuration with Gmail (particularly and was successful, however the big shortcoming if such config is that it is able to send mails only to Google adressess, external domains are inaccessible.

What I've found out is that:

1. Most SMTP-servers requires SMTP-authentication, but SAP is able to provide (only certain types of) such authentication only since release 7.31 and certain SPS (as stated in note 1702632).

2. As SAP doesn't support SMTP authentication on lower releases you need SMTP relay (or need even on higher ones?). Otherwise you should disable SMTP-auth on SMTP-server side.

The questions are:

  1. Is it possible to set up as an external mail server? With the transition of Outlook to Office365 platform the above manual should be true also for that case but I wasn't able to set it up.
  2. Is it possible to set up Amazon SES? As far as I understand, it is quite configurable too.
  3. What other non-proprietary (GNU, GPL) solutions are available for install on AWS Linux instance?

Personal experience is highly appreciated.
