Hi Petr,

Not mentioned as unknown lines by innreport in its daily mail I assume.

> It is possible to log peer name?

Well, as innd did not log it, I believe it is because there was no Path:
header in the article.  It takes the peer name from the Path: header
except when logipaddr is set to true in inn.conf.
Maybe we should try to behave as though logipaddr were true when
there is no Path: header.

I see that the message-ID which was found is "reset" when the error
is found.  I can try to log it at the end of the error.

As for remembering it from the argument to TAKETHIS or IHAVE, I do not
know whether it is a good idea.  The standard allows to say "IHAVE <a>"
and send <b>...

Could you please try that patch and tell me how your logs now look like?
