That's how I understood it.

Yes, I understand that the First MTA should have set it. I thought he was 
saying that murphy.debian.org was a problem, in which case 'that' problem was 
probably somewhere in the Debian area. I still got onto my own ISP for their 
'not' setting message-ID since they are the First MTA I hit.

That was what I meant. I wrote this paragraph before writing the one above 
it. It was only after sending that I realised it didn't read properly.

I have contacted my ISP and asked them to fix their mail server, but they say 
that I should be setting it in kmail? Judging from the many replies this has 
generated, it seems this is not as black-N-white as I thought. I'll watch 
this space for a little while before doing anything else about this.
