I have an AIX server that is in my domain that I allow to relay through my Exchange 2003 server.  All is fine except when I look at the headers, the return path is different that the "From" address.  I have looked at the CFG file on the AIX server and all is in order there.  Below is a sample of the header file:

Microsoft Mail Internet Headers Version 2.0

Received: from cpfcp615.mdvnf.com ([128.5.0.5]) by exch1.mdvcorp.mdvnf.com with Microsoft SMTPSVC(6.0.3790.3959);

All is fine according to that. AIX mail is being sent to localhost, so it shows received from root@localhost. Change the smtp config on AIX to send to its FQDN name and that should change. Also insure that its local mail server will respond on that as well.
