Well, you're only ... 5 months out of date? :-)  Only thing you have to
really pay attention to is your components files, if you aren't using
the defaults.

It's still there and works fine.  The next release of nmh will have
a -messageid flag to send to let you change how Message-IDs are
generated.  But -msgid will still be around, and I don't think
that's going to change ever.  I am letting you know up front that
if you ask a question about 1.5 that is in the release notes I will
make fun of you on the list :-)

This brings up a question I always had back when we had this discussion ...
what are people keeping those Message-IDs for, anyway?  I remember Ralph
Corderoy saying that he likes to tell people "I said that in message
<message-id>" ... I know if I tried that with the people I exchange email
with, they wouldn't have any idea what I'm talking about.
