Are you using IIS 5 or IIS 4 ? Are you trying to block outgoing SMTP mails ?

The HELO setting is available in IIS 5.Open IIS console,click on SMTP Service.Under SMTP, you have something called as domain. Right click .. Properties.. on domain.Select the domain which is remote.You will find the option "Send HELO instead of EHLO". You need to check that option and you are through.

this is an NT 4.0 (iis4) server - it just came up as a low risk on an assesment on that particular server. Thanks.

I guess he re-configured his mail server and can't receive any mail :-)

sorry for the delay :-(   so here is the deal - we had a company do an assesment on our network.....they said this server had a low risk and that ehlo should be disabled. This server does use IIS smtp. Can ehlo be disabled, but the mail piece can still be functional?
