Need to modify server response to EHLO / HELO RRS feed

  • Question

  • Presently the 220 banner shows the FQDN correctly.

    However the 250 Helo Response is showing the internal hostname with the .local suffix

    220 mx1.FQDN.com
    ehlo me.com
    250-EXCH1.domain.local Hello [198.84.231.11]

    I would like the EXCH1.arp.local to respond with the same FQDN as the 220 banner "mx1.FQDN.com"

    Previous versions of Exchange seem to have sections to specify the FQDN for EHLO / HELO response.

  • Hi

    The General tab of the Send connector properties in the EMC includes the option Specify the FQDN this connector will provide in response to HELO or EHLO. In the Shell, this property is set by using the Fqdn parameter with the Set-SendConnector cmdlet.

    For more information,please refer to

    “Understanding Send Connectors”

  • In the ECP - go to mail flow->set both send connector and receive connectors-> click them and on scoping at the bottom is had FQDN: specify the FQDN this connector will provide in response to HELo or EHLO. save and you are set!
