Hiding the Internal AD FQDN in message headers

In Exchange 5.5 (NOT an AD member) I was able to set the FQDN to = our
external e-mail domain name, therefore the mail headers the receiving party
saw were "mailserver.externaldomain.com"

On my new Exchange 2000 machine, even WITH the Masquerade domain set to
"externalmaildomain.com"  the receiving party's header now says

How can I "Hide" the internal AD domain name?

I'm using the Front-End / Back-End scenario, which intensifies this problem
by either the Back-end server shooting straight out revealing it's internal
name & the AD name, or if I set the Front-End server as the 'Smart host'
(this doesn't re-write the header), revealing BOTH internal mail server
names, the AD name & the internal IP addresses??

It's all a bit to 'revealing' if you ask me.  How is everyone else handling

Thanks for your time,
