Does anyone know what setting I am missing where this is showing up.  Everywhere I look
mail.XXXX.com show up as the server name and this is also in the header but the header begins with the internal FQDN in it.  Is this way it should be?

Hi,

You modify permissions for the send connector.

Refer this article:

Hope this helps,
Shree

The info will still be there even after you modify the connector and this is by design.

Modifying the connector will remove some info but the name will still be in the message id header.

I really dont know why people worry so much about the internal servername anyway the only way to remove it is to create a hub transport rule to delete the header however i should add that this is not a best practice since an email without message id is not rfc compliant
