What do you mean by "official mail id"?

Because almost always, exchange will corrupt patches.

Send one to yourself to try first.

But if you can use exchange as an imap server, great, use git send-email
that way and see what happens (again, test on yourself first.)
Instructions for how to set that up can be found in the man pages and by
asking your mail admin for the imap details.
