Not sure where to post this so i will start here.

We are running a full 365 Exchange environment having completed the migration. The issue that we have come across is that we use Mail Enable Security groups to send Department or Location based e mails to. 

Some of these are from SQL Servers and previously you could set this to Anonymous Sending protocol in SQL Mail. This now doesn't work, (which is a good thing) but i am loathed to set up an account with "Password Never Expires" to be used on the SQL Servers / SharePoint

So the question is is it possible to have Service Account similar to a AD Managed service account in Exchange where the password is controlled and changed by exchange?

 

Hope that this makes sense if this isn't the the correct area please tell me :)
