Abstract

[ARF] defined the Abuse Reporting Format, an extensible message format for Email Feedback Reports. These reports are used to report incidents of email abuse. ARF was extended by [AUTHFAILURE-REPORT] to enable the reporting of email authentication failures. These specifications provided for the source IP address to be included in a report. As explained in [LOG], the deployment of IP address sharing techniques requires the source port values to be included in reports if unambiguous identification of the origin of abuse is to be achieved.
