Problem with EHLO string in SMTP-sensor



The simple SMTP-sensor sends out the computer name on the EHLO string, instead of the FQDN specified in the system settings. This has cause issues with services such as senderbase, that detected the maligned EHLO strings.

Is there a way to correct this?

I am running PRTG Network Monitor
