You really haven't given enough information to sort out your problem. If
you are just using a normal email client, like MS Outlook Express, and
sending the email through your ISP's SMTP server, the issue with a HELO
command should never occur.

OTOH, if you are using some kind of MTA SMTP client, and trying to connect
directly to MX servers, your MTA client needs to use an RFC compliant
computer name for the HELO command. Also, I reject connection attempts if
the sender is using my domain name, or my IP address in their HELO command.
