What are you talking about? Here's the mx for gizmoman.net:
# david at mutt:~$ dig +short gizmoman.net mx
# 10 mx1.conxion.com.au.

You snipped out the bit where I explained that the above header was
generated by _my_ MTA. It's under _my_ control, humming away under _my_
desk here where I type. I _know_ that header isn't forged.
The mx for gizmoman.net isn't beachbum-server.beach-bum-solutions.com,
it's mx1.conxion.com.au. The IP address of
beachbum-server.beach-bum-solutions.com isn't 18.104.22.168 it's
22.214.171.124. gizmoman.net points to 126.96.36.199 (and probably a lot
of other domains do too).

What's the above got to do with the price of fish?

They _do_ when your _own_ machine is reporting an IP based on a TCP
