Delivery report FROM address -- how is it set? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am the admin of an Exchange 2016 setup. One of my users received an external piece of mail. The sender of that external mail received a delivery report saying it was delivered successfully to my end user.  The FROM address on the delivery report was my address.

    I am assuming the FROM address was my address because I am the admin of the server, is that correct?

    Is there way in Powershell or EMC to set who the delivery report says it comes FROM?

    Thanks,
    Mike
