Often you are forced to analyze mail headers. If this is not part of your daily tasks, it’s difficult to “read” the header information.

MXToolBox.com offers a free header analyzer which performs a graphical preparation of the mail header which can be used for documentation and further analyzing. You can follow the different steps of the sent mail as well as e.g. spamfilter or mailserver header additions:

Here you can find the header analyzer:

An alternative Tool to analyze the E-Mail header comes from google:

You can remove the internal address and hostname using the “header firewall” which removes certain rights for the builtin user “Anonymous Logon”. So we remove the ExtendedRight for “ms-Exch-Send-Headers-Routing” for external SMTP-Connector.

First check the access rights of your external connector:

Get-SendConnector “EXTERNAL-CONNECTOR-NAME” | Get-ADPermission | Where-Object { $_.extendedrights –like “*routing*” | fl user, *rights

Be aware to use the right spelling for your Exchange servers’ language:

English OS:

Remove-ADPermission –id “EXTERNAL-CONNECTOR-NAME” -AccessRight ExtendedRight -ExtendedRights “ms-Exch-Send-Headers-Routing” -user “NT AUTHORITY\Anonymous Logon”

German OS:

Remove-ADPermission –id “EXTERNAL-CONNECTOR-NAME” -AccessRight ExtendedRight -ExtendedRights “ms-Exch-Send-Headers-Routing” -user “NT-AUTORITÄT\Anonymous-Anmeldung”

Change FQDN:

Set-SendConnector -id “EXTERNAL-CONNECOR-NAME” -FQDN:mail.company.com
