Hi everyone, recently had to deal with something that was probably hoax going on through our forum and while clarifying issues surrounding it had to check an email headers. Well, the originated ip is somewhat mysterious, if someone could clarify if they think these headers were altered before sending me or if the originating ip and all are normal. Thank you.

i never heard about an octet being larger than 255, never seen one.
Dotted decimal notation never includes numbers that are larger than 255 because each decimal number represents 8 bits of a 32-bit address. The largest number that 8 bits can express is 11111111 in binary, which is 255 in decimal.
Main article: IPv6#Addressing
In IPv6, the new (but not yet widely deployed) standard protocol for the Internet, addresses are 128 bits wide, which, even with generous assignment of netblocks, should suffice for the foreseeable future. In theory, there would be exactly 2128, or about 3.403 × 1038 unique host interface addresses. The exact number is 340,282,366,920,938,463,463,374,607,431,768,211,456. This large address space will be sparsely populated, which makes it possible to again encode more routing information into the addresses themselves.
This magnitude of IPs available will be necessary in the future as mobile phones, cars and all types of personal devices come to rely on the internet for everyday purposes.
IPv6 are separated with :'s instead of .'s
The 278 part of the IP address might be a microsoft muck up; you can contact them and find out if they have more details about this particular mail.
