If you are running multiple Simple Mail Transfer Protocol
(SMTP) virtual servers on a single computer, you can configure each server to
respond with a different host name in the service banner. For example, you
might have a dual-homed server with one network adapter on the private network
and the other network adapter exposed to the Internet.
To have a server respond with a different host name in the
service banner, follow these steps:
- Start Exchange System Manager.
- Expand the Administrative Groups object,
expand the <site name>
object, and then expand the Servers object.
- Expand the server object that you want to host the extra
virtual servers, and then expand the Protocols
- Right-click SMTP, point to
New, and then click SMTP Virtual Server.
- Assign a name to the new SMTP virtual server, and then
assign it to a specific IP.
- After the SMTP virtual server object is created,
right-click the object, and then click Properties.
- Click the Delivery tab, and then click
- Edit the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) to reflect the
host name that you want to appear in the service sign-on banner.
- Right-click the new virtual server, click
Stop, and then restart it.
- To test the new name, click Start, click
Run, and then in the Open box, type
telnet <IP address>
