Exchange 2007 sending email with internal name, not FQDN - HE

I'm not used to seeing internal names and IP addresses on emails if the FQDN
is setup on the connector properly. When ever I setup an exchange 2003 server
it delivers the email without the internal name/ip address. I always assumed
it should not show the internal name/address.

By viewing other people's emails I do not see their internal information.
And also if it's delivered with internal information, doesn't some systems
regard this as spam?

Here is what the header looks like: as you can see it lists both FQDN AND
the internal. What's up with that?

No, it's going to show both - the idea is it shows you every stop the
message made on its way to you.

Today I got a message saying that it was from Bank of America regarding my
credit card. I wanted to confirm that it really was from BoA, so I looked at
the header. It showed the originating mail server as having a name such as
"srv4" and an IP address of 192.168.x.x. I'm pretty sure they aren't using
Exchange, and if an organization of that size shows this info in the header,
I don't think you have much to worry about.

By the way, I have implemented Exchange 2007 and I tried to change the name
used for SMTP to the external name but it wouldn't let me. Also, every
earlier verion of Exchange that I have used also showed the same info in the
mail headers.
