Severity: normal


I created some test mails using mailx, and saw that some of them have the
same message ID:

Date: Mon, 31 Aug 2009 22:11:14 +0200                                           
Message-Id: <80a56a@mac.home>

Message-Id: <80a56a@mac.home>

This already happened after only 5 mails.

 dma        - lightweight mail transport agent
Closes: 544357 544475
 dma (0.0.2009.07.17-2) unstable; urgency=low
   * Allow the spool directory to live on a filesystem that does not
     set the d_type member of the dirent structure, like XFS.
     Closes: #544357
   * Randomize the Message-Id a bit more.  Closes: #544475
   * Bump Standards-Version to 3.8.3 with no changes.
   * Only enable the build hardening wrapper if the "hardening" build
     option is specified.
   * Switch the copyright file header from the Wiki to DEP 5.
   * Remove the manual page ".Dx" patch - the groff version in Squeeze
     knows about the .Dx mdoc macro.  Add a lintian override for
     the "Unknown DragonFly version" error.
   * Convert the patch file headers to the DEP 3 format.
