The sendmail command I refered to is part of the postfix program as you've
stated. No relation to the Sendmail SMTP server.
Does Sendmail (SMTP) rewrite the blank message-id? I've pretty much
narrowed it down to cyrus here.
I'm running postfix-2.1.5-2.4.FC3 (standard Fedora core 3 RPM, except
I've recompiled with with MySQL support), cyrus-imapd-2.2.10-3.fc3
(standard Fedora core 3 RPM, which I swapped out the autocreate patch for
the newest one so I could auto create sieve scripts, and rebuilt the RPM),
mailscanner-4.36.4-1, clamav-0.83-1, and spamassassin-3.0.1-0.FC3.
