Errr..actually, Dennis, what she said was that your mailer software's
broken. Your mailer software is *supposed* to generate uniqe Message-ID:
headers for every message you send. Instead, it's generating the *same*
Message-ID: header for every message you send.
The archiving software they use, MHOnArc, correctly uses that header to
prune the archives and save space, because there's no reason to assume
multiple unique messages would have identical Message-ID: headers. But
yours do, and the archiving software ignores it.
It's not a problem with MHOnArc, it's a problem with your mailer software.
That's broken behavior.
