ETRN definition

messaging, protocol
("Extended TURN") An ESMTP command (first defined in RFC 1985) with which a client asks the server to deliver queued mail to the client via a new ESMTP connection.
ETRN supersedes the SMTP "TURN" command in the same way that ESMTP's "EHLO" supersedes SMTP's "HELO".
