Hi everyone,
I've installed the 'ConfigServer Mail Queues' addon, and I must say, it's quite useful. Recently, I was looking through the mail queue, and there were 846 messages there! Suprisingly, 316 of them were bounce messages to one email address. Confused, I had a look at one of the bounced messages.
Here's what one of them looks like:

[email address] = The person's email address
[ip] = Server IP
[server] = The server's host name
[site] = Their site name (their domain)

Now, I thought this was from another server (I don't have MailScanner installed), but why does my server's IP appear in the first 'Received' line?

It's in the wrong timezone (and the ID is weird), so why is my server's IP there? :confused: :eek:
