Subject [jira] Created: (JAMES-344) FetchMail cannot parse particular format of "Received" header

FetchMail cannot parse particular format of "Received" header

         Key: JAMES-344
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-344
     Project: James
        Type: Bug
  Components: FetchMail  
    Versions: 2.2.1    
    Reporter: Jeff Keyser
    Priority: Minor

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) ( 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.
