Signing up to something. A password is needed. Apple suggests

 

 

 

RuFGG-GXX3b-8fAXa

 

 

 

and the form returns

 

 

 

"The suggested password is not complex enough"! I checked a couple of those online strength tests and that password was good for 373 trillion years...! Now even if it takes a tenth of that time it should be fine....

Hmmmm, there's a link that isn't, a four letter acronym (?) that makes no more sense to me at all if the order is rearranged, and I'm not sure if the post is a question with a missing question mark, or a statement using the.full.stop.between.words for emphasis.

 

ELHO seems to be a brand of recycled plastic planter pots.  Am I on the right track?

No. EHLO is a command used in the SMTP protocol (while transmitting emails from one server to another). Read more here https://help.returnpath.com/hc/en-us/articles/220223328-What-is-Extended-HELO-EHLO-

 

MadEngineer is complaining that Outlook/Office is not following the standard (not a requirement but if implemented it should follow).

Ah thanks - I've possibly got it now - I think. So HELO isn't an acronym (ie like SMTP) or a backronym - but a command that is a homophone. But looks like it could or should be, especially when EHLO also isn't an acronym or homophone - but some kind of blend between the two.

Handle9: It's a moot point not a mute.

 

Mime artists having a debate would be a mute moot. Or sign-linguists.





Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

Or maybe even Mid-Winter celebration, if we're being completely honest

HELO is, I believe, simply "Hello" constrained to a 4 letter command - and it's what the client first says to the server to begin sending an email.  Clients are polite!

 

EHLO is the extended version of the original command - so EHLO - still trying to keep inside 4 chars.

 

Remember back in the 1970s, bandwidth was a big issue, hence the very terse commandset.
