Ouch ouch.
I checked my archive (1000-2000 messages, most created with HM 1.02) and there are tons of messages with id="" :( So...
I saw that this was already talked about quite a bit, but I'm not sure I saw a definite conclusion about how HM will deal with it in the future. I know having no Message-ID is wrong to begin with, so one way to look at it would be to say 'hey, it's not HM's fault, fix your mail reader/sender app', but that wouldn't help the maintainer of the archives much...

Also, I see that HM archive at is using HM 2.0b4 - is that version better at handiling null message IDs?

What is the safest solution? Go back to HM 1.02?
