Hello,

my exchange is sending in the mail header my exchange server name instead of my hostname.

Ex:
Received: from MyExchServ.MyDomainName.local ([Mac address]) by
MyExchServ.MyDomainName ([Mac address]) with mapi; Wed, 3 Aug
2011 12:15:12 +0100

and I want:
Received: from mysite.com ([Mac address]) by
mysite.com ([Mac address]) with mapi; Wed, 3 Aug
2011 12:15:12 +0100

how can I change this?

this sometimes cause confusion on the server that receives the email that the MyExchServ.MyDomainName.local server existe in the outer world and reverse lookup fails.

Change the FQDN on the Send connector being used to send outbound emails.

thanks again,

It's been like that for months, and it has restarted at least once a month.

I have been seeing if there is another place and found and option on the Edit an E-Mail Address Policy, and the default setting has my domain name on the FQDN, does this affect the header?

if so do i have to add a PTR and a MX to my dns server with my exchange server name with the host name?
ex: myexchangeserver.myhost.com

Absolutely Not! The default email address policy will not affect this. I had a client ask to make this same change and after they did, it was still not working. I came to find out they had an edge server configured to be the outbound SMTP bridgehead. What is your exact config for your environment (how many servers, what roles, what is the flow for outbound email)?

lol I figured out what that is... could have saved me some time on the configuring accounts ehehe.

ok this is what I got...

I control the dns,ns,webserver, and exchange server

Exchange 2010 STD server (no sp1) has direct access to the internet POP3 and OWA.
SMTP goes through a gateway spam server ASSP before going to exchange.
everything else is mostly default config.

site ex: name www.mysite.com
internal server name ex: myserverexchange.mydomain.local

what apears in the headers is myserverexchange.mydomain.local
and probable what should apear is myserverexhange.mysite.com

The exchange server controls all email in this company sends and receives.

I dont have problems but sometimes in rare cases I get these super hardcore Spam servers that block my companies email because it reads header info instead of the email address.

Glad to hear you figured it out!

 DOH!

Ok lets try something else. Go to the default receive connector on the server and change the FQDN there as well. Now when you telnet to the hub transport server from any machine on your network on port 25, what do you see as the servername?
