Re: [Evolution] Evolution generating invalid message-ids

All you have to do is give your box a hostname other than
"localhost.localdomain" and your problem is forever solved.

Sure, 1.0.x is "broken" (if you believe that message-ids actually have
meaning in your life), but does a dns lookup on your hostname
and so is no longer broken.

Let me ask you this:

what difference does it really make if a message-id is world-unique or
not? Does this let MUAs eliminate duplicate messages based on
message-id? Hell no (if you need to ask why not, then you obviously
haven't though about security concerns). Does this solve world hunger?
Again no. Does it bring about World Peace? I wish.

So why do you even care? What difference does it make?

Every non-crappy MUA in the world is handling it the way I described. 
Every guy I asked told me you are doing it the wrong way. 
I get mails from other users telling me my MUA behaves wrong. 
RFC is talking a clearly language about "globally unique" (And doesn't
say a word about "within your application". It talks about the hole
planet, when it says "globally")

Your decision.

My decision: This is my last mal with evolution. 
I'm not willing to break the net's rules.

and thank you for your time.
