Yes, don't use your email client for actually sending the patches.
Use git-send-email for 'stg mail' to send your patches from the
command line.  Your Exchange server should have SMTP turned on and you
can send directly to it.  Otherwise, you can try connecting to an
external open SMTP relay.

You'll still receive the replies and comments in Outlook.
