This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell to configure the message format settings for a remote domain.
You can create remote domain entries to define the settings for message transfer between the Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 organization and domains outside your Active Directory directory service forest. When you create a remote domain entry, you control the types of messages that are sent to that domain. You can also apply message format policies and acceptable character sets for messages that are sent from mailboxes users in your organization to the remote domain. The settings for remote domains are global configuration settings for the Exchange organization.
When you configure remote domains, you can specify the message format and the character set to use for e-mail messages that are sent to remote domains. You can use these settings to make sure that messages from senders in your domain to the remote domain are compatible with the receiving e-mail system. For example, if you know that the remote domain's messaging system is Exchange Server, you can specify to always use Exchange rich-text formatting.
To perform the following procedures for the Exchange 2007 organization, the account you use must be delegated the following:
Exchange Organization Administrator role
For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange 2007, see Permission Considerations.
Open the Exchange Management Console.
In the console tree, click Organization Configuration, and then click Hub Transport.
In the result pane, click the Remote Domains tab.
In the result pane, select the remote domain entry that you want to configure. In the action pane, click Properties, and then on the Properties page for that remote domain, click the Message Format tab.
On the Message Format tab, under Message Format Options, select the settings that you want to use for messages sent to this remote domain, select from the lists of Exchange rich-text format options and the Character sets options, and then click Apply or OK.
Run the following command to allow automatic replies to the remote domain. By default, this setting is disabled.
Set-RemoteDomain -Identity Contoso -AutoReplyEnabled $true
Run the following command to allow automatic forwards to the remote domain. By default, this setting is disabled.
Set-RemoteDomain -Identity Contoso -AutoForwardEnabled $true
Run the following command to disable delivery reports to the remote domain. By default, this setting is enabled.
Set-RemoteDomain -Identity Contoso -DeliveryReportEnabled $false
Run the following command to disable non-delivery reports to the remote domain. By default, this setting is enabled.
Set-RemoteDomain -Identity Contoso -NDREnabled $false
Run the following command to disable the display of the sender's name on messages. By default, this setting is enabled. We recommend that you leave this option enabled.

Run the following command to enable the line wrapping of message text and to set the column width to 76 characters.

Set-RemoteDomain -Identity Contoso -CharacterSet "ISO-8859-1" -NonMimeCharacterSet "ISO-8859-1"
Run the following command to specify that Transport Neutral Encapsulation Format (TNEF) encoding is used for all messages sent to the remote domain. By default, the value for this setting is
$null, and TNEF encoding is controlled by individual user settings. The TNEF settings are shown as the Exchange rich-text format options in the Exchange Management Console.
Set-RemoteDomain -Identity Contoso -TNEFEnabled $true
|You can specify more than one parameter in a command to configure more than one setting in a single operation.|
