This sound resonable, yes, but then we would also need to update
go-message to the latest version. I don't know the codebase enough to
tell if this might break something.


[PATCH] widgets/compose: Generate Message ID with domain name from address 22 days ago

From j.r to ~sircmpwn/aerc

go-messages GenerateMessageID does generate the Message ID based on the
hostname of the local machine. This is ok in this context because the
lib does not know really anything of the surroundings. But aerc does
know about the sender domain and could use this instead of the hostname.
This also aligns with the recommendation of RFC4322 to use a unique
domain name, to ensure the uniqueness of the whole Message ID [1].

A side effect of this change is that it also improves the score of some
spam filters a bit, if an E-Mail has a fully qualified domain name after
the @.

This patch fixes https://todo.sr.ht/~sircmpwn/aerc2/526

Hi Vladimír,

looks like there is already a ticket for tracking this feature and also
a bit of a discussion around how it would fit best into the UX:
