I would like to remove my ip and dns info in the header from automatic responses from my Exchange 2007 to folks outside my domain.

If you enable recipient filtering via the anti-spam filters then no one will see the information. In the current configuration you are causing backscatter which can get you blacklisted.

Removing the information isn't recommended - it can actually cause problems with the Exchange loop detection.

Personally I would just leave it enabled and enable recipient filtering:

Having that information in an NDR does no harm - if someone wants to hack your network it will help them a little bit, probably save them about 30 seconds. Someone who knows what they are doing can get the relevant information another way.

You don't get security by obscurity.
