How do I change the SMTP HELO greeting shown to other servers and clients that connect to my server?
Hexamail automatically sets the greeting using this script to detect the hostname:
http://www.hexamail.com/gethostname.php

That should show your hostname correctly if your RDNS is setup correctly.

If not you can change your greeting thus:

1) STOP the service
2) EXIT the admin
3) Edit hexamailguard.cfg (or other product .cfg) with WORDPAD
4) Add the line to the [Server] section:
SpecialSMTPGreeting=mail.mydomain.com
5) Save the file
6) Delete the file 127.0.0.1.23000.cfg
7) reopen the admin/restart the service

WHERE mail.mydomain.com should be your external mailserver fully qualified hostname
