Re: bad message-id? [when running multiple routers]

I got the following message from another sysadmin, but I find it hard to
believe that zmailer would break the rules of rfc822. Usually when this happens
the real cause of the problem is that the remote site is running a version of
sendmail that does not conform to the rfc's.

I haven't read the mail rfc's though, so who is "doing the right thing"?
