SCOM 2007 / Exchange 2007 MP: Internet Test Mail: Am I able to configure the sender address RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    is there a chance to modify the used sender address for internet mail test? My problem: it seems the - per default - the system mailbox e-mail account is used for testing internet mail connectivity. As recommended from Microsoft the internal domain address (e.g. internal.company.com) is different from the external domain address (e.g. company.com). Without the chance to configure the sender's email address, SCOM is sending the test e-mail to the destination address with sender address system....@internal.company.com. But this address is not achievable for a delivery report because there's an additional incoming gate and this gate doesn't know this address.

    So my question: any chance to change the delivery address?

    Thank you in advance for any idea.

  • Hi,
    the on,y thing I can think of, if you cant override and configure it, is to re-create it with a monitor that runs the same cmdlet but with more parameters. Then you could add the FROM address. I did that for a customer who had different namespace on servers and the rest of the domain. Take a look at http://contoso.se/blog/?p=721

  • This is hard stuff for people with missing create-monitors-skill. Is there no other way to solve this problem? I mean there are a lot of companies out there in the same situation.

  • If the author did not expose that information as overrideable, then the only choice is what Anders describes.
