Exchange and PostFix Relay: Masquerading

I'm new to Linux, and I've read up a bit on PostFix, but I'm not having much luck getting this working:

I've implemented Linux (FC5) box running Postfix 2.3.4 as a dedicated outbound relay for an Exchange 2003 server. The Exchange server sits in a subdomain, "" and sends email out from that domain.

In this Relaying role, can Postfix perform a Masquerade operation on outbound email from the Exchange server that drops the subdomain portion of the address from "" to ""?

Seems that I might be doing something wrong. The email relays fine, but the subdomain portion of the address is not removed.

No mailboxes reside on the Postfix box. It is strictly a relay.

Should I use canonical methods instead?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Message Header


Looks like it works on part of the message header, but not the part that seems to matter. These look good:

X-eSCM-MailFrom: <>

But PostFix doesn't change this one, and it appears to take precedence:
From: "John Doe" <>
X-MimeOLE: Produced By Microsoft Exchange V6.5

Can that address be changed via PostFix on a relay server? Any insight is greatly appreciated.
