Yeap, the qmail used by my ISP doesn't seem to include a Message-ID in
the headers.. (and I suppose my case is not so unusual..)
Regarding that Message-ID is mentionned as *optionnal* in the SMTP RFC,
does it mean there's no strict rules about its use?
The MUA seems (to me) to be a good candidate in the mailing process for
handle this issue: including a message-id as soons as the client is
sending his message would be a good guarantee for the rest of the
process, isn't it? (it seems to be the choice of netscape messenger and
M$ outlook.. sorry for the comparaison.. ;-])
