Is there any way to get the HELO host name?

Regards,

John

Hmm. To "get" the helo host name? Where do you want to get it? You can specify which host name hMailServer should use in the HELO command in the SMTP settings.

Pheraps Hotlanta ment computer name taken from HELO command during SMTP transaction in order to use it later in scripts during message processing?

Tonda is correct. I'm looking for the HELO response from the server as it connects to hMailServer.

The only way is to check the hostname in the first "Received" header.

So the hostname in the first received header is not a translation of the IP address, but rather what the server actually identified itself with in the HELO response?
