Message Headers for Outgoing Mail weird and incomplete using Outlook as mail client RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have one person in the office using Microsoft Outlook as their email client and the message headers do not look correct, for both internal 
    email and external email. We run a postfix/dovecot smtp/imap on a CentOS 6.10 server without using MS Exchange. Outside of coming over to the
    dark side, is there a way to set in Outlook "return path" and the "from" fields to what is standard across the rest of our email clients output
    for headers? I have bolded the bits of the header that are pertinent.

    Return-Path: <sendinguser@smtp.mycompany.com> X-Original-To: ops@mycompany.com Delivered-To: ops@mycompany.com Received: from localhost (localhost [127.0.0.1]) by smtp.mycompany.com (Postfix) with ESMTP id F32D8E025C; Tue, 23 Oct 2018 10:33:13 -0700 (PDT) Received: from smtp.mycompany.com ([127.0.0.1]) by localhost (smtp.mycompany.com [127.0.0.1]) (amavisd-new, port 10024) with LMTP id ebLS4D3gvzqV; Tue, 23 Oct 2018 10:33:13 -0700 (PDT) Received: from MyCompanyIncPC (username.mycompany.wks [10.2.1.119]) (using TLSv1.2 with cipher DHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384 (256/256 bits)) (No client certificate requested) by smtp.mycompany.com (Postfix) with ESMTPSA id AD794E0142; Tue, 23 Oct 2018 10:33:13 -0700 (PDT) From: <username> To: "'Employee 1'" <username@mycompany.com>, "'Employee 2'" <username@mycompany.com> Cc: "'Sending Employee'" <sendinguser@mycompany.com>, <ops@mycompany.com>, "'Employee 3'" <username@mycompany.com> References: <8fd1b6f8-48d7-a4ec-7c41-25add1766704@mycompany.com> <084230a0-ae0a-4d9e-fe7c-2057a4c8d9ff@mycompany.com> <d564111c-3308-ee1f-a72d-0abd4250e31f@mycompany.com> In-Reply-To: <d564111c-3308-ee1f-a72d-0abd4250e31f@mycompany.com> Subject: RE: Audit: New clients since 9/1/2017 Date: Tue, 23 Oct 2018 10:33:45 -0700 Message-ID: <000701d46af6$8d2d1cb0$a7875610$@Domain> MIME-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: multipart/alternative; boundary="----=_NextPart_000_0008_01D46ABB.E0CE44B0" X-Mailer: Microsoft Outlook 16.0

  • You could try and paste an unaltered version of the header in Microsofts Analyzer

  • Hi,

    Message headers are produced by the mail server during the transmission process. From Outlook client side, we cannot control the header fields. I'd recommend you contact your mail provider to get further assistance.
