e-mail not delivered

I receive a club newsletter via e-mail. The sender has had the mail returned with the following error message

504 wwl>:Helo command rejected: need fully-qualified hostname

We have no idea what this means and would appreciate any suggestions.

# Error Message: 504 : Helo command rejected: need fully-qualified hostname.
# Solution: Your mail server needs to be reconfigured to send a proper helo greeting.

Thanks santos7

Sorry to be a bit dim but by mail server do you mean I need to contact my isp or is it something on my machine?

The thing is, only mail from this one person is rejected which implies my end is ok and it is something to do with him.

Not exactly aufait with this but the error message
(after a bit of digging) is treating the newsletter emails you are receiving as a virus/spam and henceforth bouncing it back to sender

I think you are right . It looks like the attachment is being treated as a possible virus. I've contacted my isp for some advice.

Thanks very much for the help
