Yesterday I was expecting a confirmation message which, seemingly, never came. It turns out my maildir already contained a message from the same system. From three years ago. With the same Message-ID. Malice has nothing on incompetence. Could we distinguish messages with identical Message-IDs based on some header fields, e.g. Date, From?
