The sending MUA *should* set a Message-Id.  If it doesn't, then the
mail server will.  In practice, there's only a few valid mail clients
that don't generate one by default.  But there's quite a few
badly-written bulk mailers that don't bother.

The SLUG mailing lists hold for moderation everything that has a
Message-Id generated by one of our MXes.  It's increased the number of
false hits slightly (mostly from windows clients, and in one memorable
instance, an OS/2 mailer..), but IMO is well worth it.
