Authentication problem in hybrid configuration (Office 365)

Hello,
 
We are trying to setup a hybrid configuration for an specific domain. This hybrid configuration has several e-mail addresses which use our SmarterMail Server and other addresses use Office 365:
 
- MX DNS register are pointing to our SmarterMail server
- E-mail addresses hosted in Office 365 are setup like an alias in our SmarterMail server. This alias redirect the e-mails to the corresponding Office 365 account (for example: user@domain.com redirects to user@alias.onmicrosoft.com).
 
When we try to send e-mails from an e-mail account hosted in Office 365 to an account in our SmarterMail server (both e-mail accounts belong to the same domain in an hybrid configuration), we receive this bounce error:
 
"550 5.7.368 Remote server returned authentication required to relay -> 550 Authentication is required for relay"
 
So, the solution we have to apply is deselect the "Require SMTP Authentication" for the domain in the SmarterMail server. But this is a hole security in order to avoid SPAM sending through our SmarterMail Server.
