Definition Edit

The hello domain "contains the internet protocol (‘IP’) address and domain name of the sending party."[1]

Overview Edit

"When e-mail is sent, the hello domain and sender information exist as part of the transmission information of the e-mail. E-mail servers and routers starting with the sender's Internet Service Provider ([[ISP]') relay the message forward until it reaches the e-mail servers of the recipient's ISP, which then direct the e-mail to the intended recipient. These server interactions include the presentation of the sending e-mail's hello domain. Essentially, the sending computer identifies itself and presents the hello domain of the e-mail."[2]
