How to set proper "Sender" for Forefront EDGE server?

    Question

  • Hello,

    I've Forefront EDGE server installed on stand alone Windows 2008R2 server.

    Using "Send connectors" and configured smart host IP to use for all outgoing mails.

    When mail is being quarantined and I go into FPES Console and try to deliver it manually to a different mailbox outside my Exchange server. I do not want it to be delivered to original recipient.

    Mail fails because smart host server we use drops it with the following error: 550 5.1.8 invalid/host-not-in-DNS return address not allowed

    This is because the Sender of this specified mail I tried to deliver is: ForefrontServerProtection@EDGE2.server

    I couldn't find a way to change it in EDGE configuration,

    Can you assist please?

    Thanks
