Exchange 2000 Postmaster Account

I have two STMP domains in my organization. (Domain A and B)

The postmaster account for Domain A works without a problem. The problem is that NDR for Domain B always come from postmaster@domainA.com. I have tried adding postmaster@domainB.com addresses to users in both domains (not at the sametime), but this does not work.

How can I have a NDR's from DomainA come from postmaster@domainA.com and NDR's from DomainB come from postmaster@domainB.com?

Also can the postmasters from address be change? (E.g postmaster@DomainA.com is changed to postmaster@DomainC.com after a company name change.)

We have a similar problem with a possible work-around.  We have one forest with four domains.  I have domA which was the first with Exchange.  The forest shares a DNS domain name with the organization's Unix e-mail system.  

The default Recipient Policy used @forest for the default e-mail name.  Unfortunately, messages from Exchange would think everything to @forest was part of the Exchange system.  Therefore, messages to @forest did not get sent to the Unix system.  I changed the default e-mail address to @exchange.forest.  

Now, when any NDR gets sent, it comes from postmaster@exchange.forest.  The postmaster account at domA.forest is configured to recieve messages sent to that address and an MX record for exchange.forest was created to route the messages.

So far, it is working.  However, if we get a number of organizations moved to Exchange and people start sending replies to NDR's, I could get swamped.  The better answer is for each domain to have their own postmaster send NDR's and receive the replies.
