MSGID/REPLY are not required /unless/ your software supports FTS-0009... if >your software supports FTS-0009, it is expected to adhere to the protocols >defined within it...
The reason I ask, was a message came in on another FTN type network,
and my tosser processed but reported a message with no MSGID. Of
course, nothing says it has to be there, but, there are a few FTSC
documents which mention how to use it for dupe checking and reply
chaining. Which would break as soon as two different topics come in
with the same blank msgid, and thus blank reply.
(Not policing, just trying to make sure I don't allow CRAP in/out!)
