mgenmid
generate a Message-ID

mgenmid

mgenmid generates and prints a unique Message-ID. The Message-ID consists of an encoded timestamp, a random value, and a fully qualified domain name.
The fully qualified domain name is arrived at by:
  1. Using ‘FQDN:’ from ${MBLAZE:-$HOME/.mblaze}/profile (if set).
  2. Resolving the current hostname.
  3. Using the domain component of the mail address in ‘Local-Mailbox:’ from ${MBLAZE:-$HOME/.mblaze}/profile (if set).
If these steps don't result in a fully qualified domain name, mgenmid fails.

The mgenmid utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
