    Anyone knows how to prevent internal IP address from being sent in the email header (except for the public IP) for security purposes?

    Hello :)

    This type of modification is not supported, however the following thread should help you to change this behavior:

    Hide Originating IP

    Thank you.

    Hi Michael, I've tried following the instructions on the link you provided.
    However, "received_header_text" option wasn't in the EXIM advanced editor.
    How do I actually "create an option of "received_header_text""?

    In the Advanced Editor for Exim, scroll down until you see a blue box labeled "Add Additional Configuration Setting". Click on this and you will see the "received_header_text" option available.

    Thank you.
