Last question, I hope!
For "Read IP Address From Received Header":
# no or 0 ==> use the SMTP client address, ie. the address of the system
# talking to the MailScanner server. This is the normal
# yes or 1 ==> use the first IP address contained in the first "Received:"
# header at the top of the email message's headers.
Since MailScanner is not itself an SMTP server, doesn't the SMTP server
on the host MailScanner is running on always add a Received: header before
MailScanner sees the mail? How would MailScanner ever see the address of
the SMTP client if it is always [at least] once-removed?
I'm using MailScanner with postfix, using the "hold" queue to pick up
new mails. Maybe there's another configuration (content_filter?) or
for other MTAs there is a way for MS to get the mail before any MTA
Since my configuration is
it seems like I should set this value to 2? The MX host and the MS host
both add a Received: header.
