SpamAssassin RBL details

Hi all,

I have a question about how the SpamAssassin RBL's work.

We have an SMTP proxy running in front of MailScanner on our mail
server, I am wanting to turn RBL checking on, but seeing as all
connections are seen as arriving from by MailScanner I'm not
sure if the RBL's will work.

Can someone explain to me how the RBL checks are performed?  Does it
look at all the relaying IP's in the headers or does it use the
connecting IP and therefore only see

All help appreciated!
