I am trying to send a mail via Indy TidMessage and TidSmtp from an NT
Server, but my mail is rejected by Lycos and Hotmail, since the name
"stein100" of my server is not "fully qualified".

Final-Recipient: rfc822;xxx…@lycos.de
Action: failed
Status: 5.0.0
Diagnostic-Code: smtp;501 <stein100>: Helo command rejected: need
fully-qualified hostname

Any idea how I can modify the HELO setting in Indy or on the NT server?

Greetings,
Henning
