Recently I've been getting complaints from xpert about my mails being
possible spam. Ammong the explainations are:
Message-ID not being set
and the reply from one soul says;
No, its an optional setting with default to "off" because the kmail
programmers realized (back in KDE2.2.2) that not the MUA is responsible for
the Message-ID but the first MTA. Why? Because all dial-up computers create
non-unique Message-ID because it cannot be assured that the servername part
of the Message-ID is unique (mostly, a local dummy name is chosen).
Unfortunately, some use local MTAs with locale names and the same thing
Your mail provider is on several blacklists. The RFC-Ignorant one is
the most severe, because you have to be *really* stupid to run an ISP
in such a fashion as to meet the rfc-ignorant criteria. I would suggest
that you find a new ISP; eircom really does suck (I get as much spam
from them as I do from any of the major US ISPs).
I know that some people on this list have connections with eircom.net so I
was hoping that this would be quicker than trying the support list, which
I've not had much luck with in the past. Seems they're only interested if I
call at 58 cent per minute.
Sorry for being off-topic.
