The should be treated just like,
::1/128, and,,
It is a private address (link-local vs. host-local vs site-local).
As such it should be included in internal_networks, trusted_networks,
and @mynetworks in amavisd.conf.

Just as there is nothing wrong with seeing in a
received trace, there is nothing wrong with seeing 169.254.x.x
