Use the Test-SenderId cmdlet to test whether a specified IP address is the legitimate sending address for a specified SMTP address.

Test-SenderId -IPAddress <IPAddress> -PurportedResponsibleDomain <SmtpDomain> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-HelloDomain <String>] [-Server <ServerIdParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

The Test-SenderId cmdlet provides the results of a Sender ID check for the IP address and the corresponding domain name that you specify. For more information about Sender ID in Microsoft Exchange Server 2010, see Understanding Sender ID.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although all parameters for this cmdlet are listed in this topic, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To see what permissions you need, see the "Anti-spam features" entry in the Transport Permissions topic.


Parameter Required Type Description




The IPAddress parameter specifies the originating IP address of the sending server.




The PurportedResponsibleDomain parameter specifies the domain name that you want to verify with Sender ID.




The Confirm switch causes the command to pause processing and requires you to acknowledge what the command will do before processing continues. You don't have to specify a value with the Confirm switch.




The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that retrieves data from Active Directory. The DomainController parameter isn't supported on the Edge Transport server role. The Edge Transport server role reads only from the Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) instance.




The HelloDomain parameter specifies the domain address displayed in the HELO or EHLO SMTP commands from this sender.




The Server parameter specifies the server on which you run this command. If you don't use the Server parameter, the command is run on the local server where the task is executed.




The WhatIf switch instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf switch, you can view what changes would occur without having to apply any of those changes. You don't have to specify a value with the WhatIf switch.

To see the input types that this cmdlet accepts, see Cmdlet Input and Output Types. If the Input Type field for a cmdlet is blank, the cmdlet doesn’t accept input data.

To see the return types, which are also known as output types, that this cmdlet accepts, see Cmdlet Input and Output Types. If the Output Type field is blank, the cmdlet doesn’t return data.

This example checks whether the IP address is the legitimate sender address for the domain contoso.com.
