(Carlo Kok) #1

we have some customers that don’t have a messageID in their emails, discourse gives this error:

Why on :earth_americas: would anyone send a mail without a message id? :rage:

Can I get the raw email? Do you know what software they use to send their emails?

Sent via privmsg. It seems to be something called Best-Tracker.

RFC-2822 says that Message-ID ‘SHOULD’ be present, so these messages are compliant, but it’s also completely reasonable to not support them. Modern SMTP systems rely heavily on Message-ID.
