I administer a tenant for my organization that have users with various type of licenses. Some E5 accounts, some business basic (that both have an exchange mailbox) and some o365business without mailbox.
For a series of reasons, our corporate mail is still on Gsuite, so all the users (also the E5) have the "real" mail on google and we don't use (eve if you pay) the exchange mailboxes.
In many application (like Sharepoint or Teams) when a user is notified of something (eg. @ mention in a teams comment or "notify the the team" when I add a new document on a sharepoint library) the engine sends the mail to outlook.com for the exchange users or fails to deliver in other cases.
Is it there a possibility to setup that we have an external provider (I don't know if thru dns or something else) ?
thanks in advance

@Joe Stocker first of all thanks for the response and for your time.
Yes, it seems it works. Sharepoint's notify is sent (in spam folder, but it is another story) and when I schedule a meeting in Teams mail are sent to Google.
The only drawback is that now, if I schedule a meeting from Teams calendar, the creation is stucked (the spinning icon runs for minutes); the meeting is created, because mail starts, the link works and the record in the Posts timeline exists; but after long waiting, on the calendar there is nothing.
And I guess it is related to this change, because till yesterday I created dozens of meeting and they are all on the calendar.

@Joe Stocker thanks again
The strange thing is that if I schedule a meeting without indicating a specific channel, the event is created normally, mail is sent and it appears on calendar.
Only if I choose a Team+Channel, then I have the issue of long-spinning + diseappering...
Question: if I follow your 2nd hint I had to write so:
Set-Mailbox -Identity "John Doe" -DeliverToMailboxAndForward $true -ForwardingSMTPAddress "JohnDoe@myDomain.com"
where myDomain.com is the same for o365 (exhange online) and Gsuite.
So are you sure he will check the DNS MX and route to google?
