Hey Guys

I'm not sure if this is possible. I would like to hide the Exchange server address in non-delivery-reply (NDR) messages.

I tried the following command: Get-RemoteDomain "default" | Set-RemoteDomain -NDRDiagnosticInfoEnabled $false

But it still shows the mail.server.com address in the NDR. Is it possible to hide that in the reply?

Kind Regards
Aaron

Based on my knowledge it is not possible to hide NDR, instead of hiding NDR why don't you remove NDR?

Stopping NDRs from being sent isn't really a good idea. They are a vital part of diagnosing issues and it can mean that end users don't know there is a problem.

Why do you want to hide the information? You don't get security by obscurity, removing them would slow down an attacker for about thirty seconds (tenof those to realise what you have done) and if someone is in a position to use that information you have bigger things to worry about.

the reason I was looking to hide the mail server address and internal server domain information is because the companies internal domain is an old business name that they don't want it advertised. thus i was wondering if it was possible to hide that information from the NDR report for bounces.

I think that is the best choice. Leave as it is.
