Is Exchange set up correctly if my internal domain shows up in the message headers

I am using a SBS 2011 Standard Server with Microsoft Exchange 2010. I noticed that the message headers contain my server's local address based on the internal domain.  Is this a problem? If so, how do I fix it?


Some important details
Exchange/SBS Server name = ALOHA
Internal domain = contoso.local
External domain = office.contoso.com
PTR record for external domain= yes
Active certificate installed for external domain = yes


Here's what the message headers look like from a message sent to a GMail account:

You'll want to look at the settings for your send and receive connectors. On the first tab of the properties for each there is an FQDN for the connectors to use. If that is set as your local domain, you should probably change that to your external domain :D

Thanks.  The send connector is set to office.contoso.com.

I have  three receive connectors:
Default ALOHA
Windows SBS Fax Sharepoint Receive ALOHA
Windows SBS Internet Receive ALOHA

The internet one is set to office.contoso.com.

Is there anything else I need to check?

I was waiting for a confirmation that I had set up everything or anything else needed to be checked.
