Hey, what do you know... if you trust both uksolutions.net and yahoo.com's
Received: lines, it didn't originate at Yahoo - it came from p4pnet.net. :wink:

(A fine demonstration of the difference between being truthful and being helpful :slight_smile:

Of course, this ignores the fact that '' is in RFC-1918 space.
<wry grin>

Now _how_ 'mrout3.yahoo.com' got that message *is* open for speculation.
Even more interesting is how it got DNS name resolution on that address.

Best available evidence indicates that _that_ header line is a total

As I recall, the header added by the destination system showed receipt
from a yahoo machine (and a valid IP address, belonging to yahoo).

It's possible that yahoo's auto-parsing got misled by the bogus header
shown above.
