Hi Chris,
Can't you just configure an administrator address in the IIS SMTP
service? That's what I always do.

        Subject: [exchangelist] SMTP Mail Relay using IIS V6.0
        Hello all,
           I am running an SMTP mail relay in the DMZ of our
organization using Win2003 IIS V6.0.  Currently, this box is running GFI
mail essentials and Mail Security (in gateway mode) with Exchange 5.5.
Though everything is working well, I have one small glitch.  It seems
that bounce backs from the SMTP Mail Relay server replies to emails that
trigger rules as Administrator@nc10s069.  I have setup a 'masquerade
domain' (IIS V6.0 feature) of in hopes that it will
reply as Administrator@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx instead.  After contacting
GFI, they stated that they have not tested their products on a Gateway
box running Windows 2003 IISV6.0 even though they say their product
supports this OS.  Any clue on what may be going on here?
         Their support said that I would have to use some tool called
'Meta Edit' or 'ADSI' to change this address, although they could not
support me in doing this.  I am pleased with their product but kind of
dissapointed in their support for a product that their software is
advertised to work on.  They also said that these tools could 'damage'
the machine, 'so be careful.'  No help for me....
        Thanks for your ideas,
