Right - the first MTA it hits. Not Debian's, not XFree86's.

Ummm, no. The problem is that the first MTA it hits isn't setting the
Message-ID. The SMTP server KMail communicates with, should set it. It's
not murphy's responsibility. Your ISP *DOES* need to set it.

Speak to your ISP, tell them to make your mail server set a Message-ID
if there's none already.
