Thank you for your comments and explanations.
I thought the arguments was some thing like:
and etc...

and the same for _ADDR_.

I've tried all the option before the mail to use the arguments like
variables or separators...
(wherever I think the used way to explain the tool's usage isn't very clear,
I thought _IP_ indicate a different feature something silly :))

It was made to cope with the "list of 100 machines compromised with
XYZ".  Paste in the list of IP and it will look up the correct email
address, create an incident and investigation for each IP and send of a
preformatted email.

It works for me.  It is only of real benefit when you run an internal
whois server containing your customers contact data. (with the same key).

Contact field should be the key (without ':').   Pressing "Test" should
show you what email address each IP's maps to.

That should work.  Internally we use "cert-mail" as a key and it works
fine.   A more complex algorithmn may be needed if you are using RIPE
directly or you will need some sort of local preparser (geektools or
cyberabuse for example).
