internal network name in return-path headers from Outlook express clients

Hi all,
I have a problem where emails from outlook express clients (both Mac and PC)
are using the internal network name in the return-path headers.  e.g

masquerading information that I have set up on the SMTP servers (Ex2000 SP3)

1. Return-Path message header issues (exch2k hosting multiple domains)

I am having issues with the return path header in messages coming from my
exch2k (sp2) server that is running as a hosted environment.

I am hosting for multiple domains, and have set up users with multiple email
addresses pointing to the same mailbox, the reason for this is to make it
quicker and easier for them to have outlook web access.
If I look at any of the messages sent from these users, and look at the
return-path in the message header, it will show the return path as the email
address for the root domain, not their domain. ie.

Root domain is the domain the servers are members of.
    Userdomains are the hosted domains for the other users.

the message header, which in my eyes is incorrect. When looking at their


Any ideas? I want it to always show only the users own domain, ie.

Any help with this would be much appreciated.

Cheers, Tim
