SQL Database Mail - Masquerading Domain and FQDN RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am successfully using SQL Database mail but would like to change the server name that is being used when sending mail to the SMTP server.

    As an example:

    Received: from unknown (HELO ServerName) ([])

    I would like to provide a FQDN for the text in bold above. I believe that was done in MS SMTP with the Masquerading Domain value and the FQDN value that could be set by an administrator.

    How can this be done SQL Database Mail?

    Thank you

  • Hi hmmmm007,

    Do you mean the marking under the mail when you received?

    This is controlled by mail service provider, SQL Server database mail can only be seen as a client of SMTP server, it don't provide a setting for this.
