Find out why the incoming messages do not have unique message-IDs.

They should.

It really isn't very acceptable for anyone to be generating unique
messages which reuse old message-IDs.

While duplicate delivery suppression isn't _necessary_, I find that it's
highly advantageous to have on a general-purpose mail server, and I've
never had any problem with it before (only compliments!).
