Description Eugene Pivovarov 2005-11-08 07:26:51 UTC
The header
X-Originating-IP: via proxy []
leads to the following in the log:
originating:, , , , a, , , , , , , , ,, , , 
and an error message:
[496] warn: Argument "a" isn't numeric in pack 
at /PerlApp/Mail/SpamAssassin/Util.pm line 713.

It looks like it has something to do with the definition of IP_ADDRESS in 
Mail::SpamAssassin::Constants, since it thinks that "a" is an IPv6 address.
Comment 1 Eugene Pivovarov 2005-11-09 11:41:50 UTC
I am not sure about the logic, but it seems like there are actually two bugs 
here. The first one is the definition of IP_ADDRESS, where "pure-IPv6 address" 
section should probably be something like
This bug leads to the weird "originating: ..." line above.

Second, either Mail::SpamAssassin::EvalTests::check_rbl_backend or 
Mail::SpamAssassin::NetSet::contains_ip assumes that IPs are always of the form 
IPV4_ADDRESS rather than IP_ADDRESS. This bug generates an error message in 
Mail::SpamAssassin::Util::my_inet_aton about non-numeric argument in pack.

we kluged around the Util error in bug 4485, but this would better fix the issue it looks like.
Comment 3 Daryl C. W. O'Shea 2006-03-08 23:25:15 UTC
I fixed this, specifically, in bug 4780.
