Internal Postmaster NDRs

I have no issues with the external postmaster NDRs, but I wanted to know if anyone knew why the internal FROM comes back as "MicrosoftExchange329e71ec88ae4615bbc36ab6ce41109e@domain.com".

Is there something that needs to be configured for it to show "Postmaster" to my internal users?

Thanks.

Have you set a postmaster@ email address on the system?

Yes, I have a mailbox with the smtp address for postmaster@domain.com.  Initially, it's just a user mailbox that I will change over to a shared mailbox once I know the internal postmaster is responding correctly.

Check this out, I used it the other day to change the NDRs: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb400930.aspx

Particular emphasis on the Get-OrganizationConfig and Set-OrganizationConfig cmdlets.

Get will show you that mailbox that it's sending from. Set will help you change it.

So I ran the Get-OrganizationConfig cmdlet and have the following (I excluded everything not relavent):

MicrosoftExchangeRecipientEmailAddresses            : {smtp:MicrosoftExchange32
                                                      9e71ec88ae4615bbc36ab6ce4
                                                      1109e@<domain>, smtp:M
                                                      icrosoftExchange329e71ec8
                                                      8ae4615bbc36ab6ce41109e@<
                                                      domain>, SMTP:Mi
                                                      crosoftExchange329e71ec88
                                                      ae4615bbc36ab6ce41109e@<d
                                                      omain>}
MicrosoftExchangeRecipientReplyRecipient            : domain/Users/Postmas
                                                      ter
MicrosoftExchangeRecipientPrimarySmtpAddress        : MicrosoftExchange329e71ec
                                                      88ae4615bbc36ab6ce41109e@
                                                      <domain>
MicrosoftExchangeRecipientEmailAddressPolicyEnabled : True

I attempted both Set-OrganizationConfig -MicrosoftExchangeRecipientEmailAddresses postmaster@domain and Set-OrganizationConfig -MicrosoftExchangeRecipientEmailAddresses "Postmaster".  Neither accepted the command.  The first attempt indicated that the smtp address I entered was already being used.  This was a result of having to build a new mailbox with the smtp address automatically configured.  I thought that by doing this, I wouldn't get the MicrosoftExchange329e71ec88ae4615bbc36ab6ce41109e@<domain> this is showing in the FROM field of an internal NDR.  Am I on the right track?

The curse of the end user strikes again      

You’ve updated all your end user’s email signatures. Hooray! But guess what? They’re playing around with the HTML, adding stupid taglines and ruining the imagery. Find out how you can save your signatures from end users today.

You're on the right track. You will have to disable the Email Policy and add a new address to change the from:

Set-OrganizationConfig -MicrosoftExchangeRecipientEmailAddressPolicyEnabled $False

Then you can assign the email address you want:

Set-OrganizationConfig -MicrosoftExchangeRecipientEmailAddresses email@domain.com

Now all this does is add an alias to the MicrosoftExchange32                                                      9e71ec88ae4615bbc36ab6ce41109e account. So you're not going to be able to use Postmaster. Just make up something, I used the company name and then postmaster, so it was: CompanyPostmaster@domain.com

Just in case anyone is interested, I think the reason you are seeing this address is because of this change in Rollup 7.

The only way to fix this is to either
a. Remove rollup 7
b. Wait for the next rollup which has a fix.
c. Call Microsoft and ask for the interim hotfix which resolves the issue.

dud386, this worked like a charm.  Thanks for your help.  And BTW, I had recently updated Exchange 2007 to rollup 7.
