Hello

I will implement Exchange 2019 onprmise and i want to use Microsoft defender for office 365 instead of buying hardware in my datacenter.

shall i configure Exchange hybrid?
Is it Microsoft defender for office 365 is enough?
is it included EOP?
What configuration required to receive all SMTP traffic on Microsoft defender for o365 and routed to my Exchange 2019 located in my datacenter?

    Defender and EOP are not the same. Defender builds on EOP and requires additional licensing
    Refer to:

    You dont need hybrid however. Just a connector that routes mail to and from 365.
    And setting your MX record to 365 so inbound mail goes there first!

    Hi, in that article:
    So if you have E3, you have EOP already with an option to upgrade.
    E5 and you are good for both EOP and Defender Plan 2
