Recipient policies define the accepted domains in Exchange 2003. Check those
out.

Subject: [ExchangeList] Reporting MTA

http://www.msexchange.org
-------------------------------------------------------Maybe I'm barking up
the wrong tree here, but this concerns an Exchange Server 2003 on an SBS
machine. Lately the users have had issues with mail not getting to
recipients. I'm under the suspicion that maybe the reason for their mail
getting rejected is because of the "Reporting-MTA" for their server. For
example, I see the following information in the headers of the returned
failed messages:


Reporting-MTA: dns;fenu.local

FENU.local is the name of their AD, but not the Domain Name for their mail.
Is it possible that the recipient domains are doing some verifications and
since fenu.local doesn't correspond to an actual domain, let alone a
possible one with a public IP, that the recipient domains are outright
rejecting these emails?

If so, where do I go about changing the Reporting-MTA on this server?

Thanks for any input.

Curtis
