Domino and Message-ID's

I've figured out that a friend's Domino Notes server is [being
generous..] saving energy by skimping on bits; the Message-ID
headers are as you see below.

X-Mailer: Lotus Notes Release 7.0 August 18, 2005
Date: 03-Nov-2005 09:12:57 EST
X-MIMETrack: Serialize by Router on IPMail01/IPSW(Release 6.5.1|January 21, 2004) at 11/03/2005
09:13:00 AM
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII

The usual sources on a fix come up snake-eyes. Has any NANOGer
run into a solution for this errr... unique RFC interpretation?

Notes seems to insert reasonable looking message IDs .. this one has
the domain part munged out of it, and is 6.5.4 rather than 7, but I
have seen the same with other notes versions.

Message-ID: <>

So unless this is some kind of bug in domino 7, I'd probably parse
this lack of message id as your friend or his notes admin goofed on
their server's config, or perhaps someone there is trying security by
obscurity, by suppressing "internal header information" etc.
