What is Extended HELO (EHLO)?

Extended HELO (EHLO) is an Extended Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (ESMTP) command sent by an email server to identify itself when connecting to another email server to start the process of sending an email. It is followed with the sending email server's domain name. The EHLO command tells the receiving server it supports extensions compatible with ESMTP.
