a ID ("x-originating-ip" "")

Other things you could send in the same command: x-originating-port, x-connected-ip, x-connected-port

And in case others are wondering, POP3 and LMTP use: XCLIENT ADDR= PORT=12345

If backend has login_trusted_networks pointing to directors, then the IP gets forwarded to backends as well.
