A) Yes it is blank. I have seen it on multiple recipients, some
with postfix, others EIMS, and "He's dead, Jim" applies.

I only stumbled onto this because Eudora will sometimes NOT show
you the message; and other times will show it when it is new,
and THEN make it vanish. I thought I was losing my mind because
that message was right here and..... (Looks like Eudora may index
on that field, and when there are two or more, bye!)

B) Yes, other Notes installations make proper Message-ID's.
So does theirs most of the time; 90% of their mail to me is OK. 
(I looked in my file of mail from him and grepped.)

C) My friend's not an admin of NANOG level, but he's FAR from
stoopid, and spent 4+ hours looking at every variable you can
set to no avail. They have 2 servers, and it's not clear if 
only one is doing this, but we think that's the case.
