Message ID in Internet Header is internal server name

I noticed recently that the internet headers of my email are listing an internal server name like below.  The reverse DNS is correct but I still can see the name of the sending server.  This is Exchange 2003 SP1 running on Enterprise Server 2003.  Any ideas?

Message-ID: <82451205E15FD84FB0BA8D3B9314A3B22C2C@server.server.local>

That is perfectly normal. Nothing you can do about it either.

I will be picky though and ask why you aren't on SP2 for Exchange 2003. Has nothing to do with your question, but there is no reason not to.

That's normal. If the server is injecting the message-id it will use what it thinks it's called, not what reverse DNS says.

Its actually a good reason not to call your server by a "funny" name, as it will be seen in the headers.

Which reminds me a site I worked on where the servers were all called... your-something...

so your-arm

So you would say

I am going to reboot your arm
The file you want is on your arm
Your arm has crashed again

rambling now... need sleep

We are in the process of upgrading all of our servers now.  If this is normal oh well.  I just dont like broadcasting an internal server name.

The way I look at it, if someone gets themselves in to a position where they can use that internal server name, you have bigger things to worry about.
