If you need this capability you will either need to drop an application
proxy that supports header rewriting between your Exchange server and
the internet, or write protocol sinks.


Exchange will not do what you want.

In the Marc Grote article "How to change the POP3 / IMAP4 and SMTP
banner in Exchange 2003"
nge-2003.html) there are few recommendations for securing mail services,
but I find these recommendations incomplete:


In SMTP service when I try to change FQDN of my server in delivery
options -> Advanced delivery to some text (i.e. TOPSecret domain ltd.')
Exchange naturally couldn't resolve this text in DNS


Changing greeting in POP3 service still don't change last server message
(when connection is closed), so that change is useless


The thing that would be really useful is to hear guru's opinion on how
to hide network topology and names from displaying in message header,
for example when I receive message from Exchange servers in FE-BE
topology I can see both server names and IPs.


Thank you.
