re: ipv6 email 

forgot to followup with the answer after I looked it up.

epoch@IPv6:2001:470:b88c::5

says to look at

rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc5321#sec

which says:

   IPv6-address-literal  = "IPv6:" IPv6-addr


IPv6-addr = IPv6-full / IPv6-comp / IPv6v4-full / IPv6v4-comp

IPv6-hex = 1*4HEXDIG

IPv6-full = IPv6-hex 7(":" IPv6-hex)

IPv6-comp = [IPv6-hex *5(":" IPv6-hex)] "::"
[IPv6-hex *5(":" IPv6-hex)]
; The "::" represents at least 2 16-bit groups of
; zeros. No more than 6 groups in addition to the
; "::" may be present.

IPv6v4-full = IPv6-hex 5(":" IPv6-hex) ":" IPv4-address-literal

IPv6v4-comp = [IPv6-hex *3(":" IPv6-hex)] "::"
[IPv6-hex *3(":" IPv6-hex) ":"]
IPv4-address-literal
; The "::" represents at least 2 16-bit groups of
; zeros. No more than 4 groups in addition to the
; "::" and IPv4-address-literal may be present.

everyone knows how to read this, right?
