You must have set something to do with "SpamAssassin Rule Actions".
I strongly suspect you have a ruleset attached to that setting, with a 
"To:" line that refers to an IP address, or possible a domain name 
involving only the characters 0-9 and a-f.

Please show us the ruleset you have attached to "SpamAssassin Rule Actions".
