Subject [jira] Commented: (JAMES-344) FetchMail cannot parse particular format of "Received" header
Date Thu, 06 Jan 2005 00:11:12 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-344?page=comments#action_57327 ]
     
Jeff Keyser commented on JAMES-344:
-----------------------------------

I suppose that if everyone else who runs into incompatabilities like this is a Java developer
and wants to learn how to write Mailets, then that would be a second option.

In any case, we can agree to disagree on what solution is "best."  If you don't see an issue
here, then go ahead and close this.

> The mail server I am pulling e-mail from inserts a "Received" header that looks like
the following:
> Received: from unknown (HELO host.domain.tld) (192.168.255.254) by ...
> BTW - The name "unknown" is always used.  I assume they are purposely saving processing
power by not reverse-looking up the host name.
> I have debugged this problem in the code, and it appears that because the IP address
is not surrounded by square brackets, computeRemoteAddress is unable to find the IP address.
 So the name "unknown" is always used to determine the address instead, which fails.
> FYI - The e-mail I am pulling actually passes through two e-mail servers by different
organizations, and they both use this format.  So I assume this format is common.
