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 
The setting can be found on the 4th icon ("create messages" ?) and there the 
last tab.

BTW: your message has a Message-ID by murphy.debian.org. Tell your ISP or 
whatever to fix their MTA because it is broken.
