Ok, so as long as I get all three items in the protocol for dccifd and just the
ip address in the -a option when using dccproc, all should be fine.

A number of things would go wrong if SpamAssassin is not configured correctly
to get the client IP address right, so we can trust it.

It seems like my most recent change to SpamAssassin is correct as far as it
goes, but I also need to have the -a option added to dccproc and to make sure
that dccifd is retried sufficiently often.

Thanks for the help,
