Environment: SharePoint 2016, Configured with SMTP

My user receives email alerts from my SharePoint Server 2016, like below.

Email signature contains Microsoft Corporation | One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399 which is misleading. How do I remove it ?

I checked the resource files, and couldnt find out exactly where this address is configured.

Well, the email text is held within

 C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\15\BIN\1033\FPEXT.MSG

The location may vary depending what version of SharePoint you are on.

Please note that making any changes to out of the box features or items is not recommended and that any changes you do make may be overwritten during any upgrades or feature releases.
