That's correct.  Any account using the Exchange-based accounts will be
sent through the Exchange server.  There is no "outgoing" server option
(for that matter, there's no "incoming" server option...it's all

If you are unable to send mail via Exchange, it could be an
authentication issue.  There's generally two, one for incoming and one
for outgoing (it'll ask you to authenticate when you click "Send").  If
you check the "Remember password" box before you enter that outgoing
authentication, it should work from then on.
