I see from your later message you found the -msgid flag in your .mh_profile,
so skipping over that ...

Hrm.  I guess I hadn't completely thought about the implications
of how localdomain was implemented; I didn't really think about the
issue of LocalName(0) versus LocalName(1).  But your point is well
taken; it doesn't really make sense to apply localdomain to both,
does it?  I think that if you're using localname you would be
expected to supply a FQDN, and localdomain should only apply in the
LocalName(1) case.

My gut feeling is that localdomain is so rarely used nowadays that
it's not worth fixing it for 1.5.  Thoughts from anyone else?  For
post-1.5 I'd be fine with either using localdomain for only the
LocalName(1) case or junking support for it completely.  Or perhaps
doing something else altogether.  Thoughts?
