the devel versions of Evolution use gethostbyname() to resolve the
results from gethostname() so that you get an FQDN.


Oh, and the hostname in the message above says "dirk", which is a widely
used name here in germany. Well, not only here, but it _might_ mean it's
a problem of german versions.

keep in mind that message-ids are not guarenteed to be unique no matter
what you do. rfc2822 even comments on this.

The trouble is not only, that evolution is generating an incorrect id.  

It should not generate _any_ MessageID.

you would be wrong.
