Well it was just for "statistical" recording (call it data-collection-mania). For every message the bot is to be processing the important data is extracted and I thought that the ip address could be found as well. I will extract the first smtp server in the chain, where the mail should have started (that should be the last in the header list, isn't it?). As I said this is more for fun, just to undestand more about the language and on all many other things the language makes easy to manipulate. Nevertheless the constant update at work of the progress eMule is doing at home is not that bad 8) Mauro<
