Perhaps you missed the point where the original problem was with an email
" I have this very odd email address found with one of our employees....
Email addresses, in fact everything in rfc822 headers, are unrelated to
tcp connectivity issues. If the employee got the email I'm willing to
assume there was connectivity. If you wish, I can describe exactly how
such an address could be in the rfc822 From header of a message that could
be delivered to you - even if 172.17.0.1 is the address of the originating
device and you have no way of reaching that address.
