Log IP-address in mail header of sending client

For SMTP server it would be helpful to have senders IP-address in the mail header (iNotes, Verse). If mails are beeing sent outside the company, the IP-address can be checked.

This would allow to block mails sent from untrusted IP-address ranges (legal requirement). The header field can be removed to keep privacy.

A workarround would be to have Domino logging the clients IP-address for each mail submitted.

e.g. Thunderbird is adding this information:

Received: from [] ([])
          by masked.x.z (IBM Domino Release 10.0.1)
          with ESMTP id 2019061816184108-3 ;

    More details:

    SPR # RBOD7YUNJ3 for the Notes client

    requirements for an enhancement are very simple:

    Provide a possiblity for admin/legal to track client host IP address for any message transferred (Sender IP address <-> MessageID).

    a) server log or
    b) add field/header with sender host IP in the message (preferred - then a SMTP server could filter out messages received by certain addresses)

    This is useful for Notes, VERSE and iNotes users.
