I agree wholeheartedly. Yes, like Ben, I'm coming to this party late. However, a unique message ID fixes a bunch of problems we can see coming (see previous thread). Moreover, it makes message delivery notification (my next project) a lot easier. Since the namespace of Message ID is rather large, and SMTP has been generating unique Message ID's for, what, 20 years, do you think we could get consensus on this issue? > -----Original Message----- > From: simple-bounces <at> ietf.org > [mailto:simple-bounces <at> ietf.org] On Behalf Of Ignacio Más > Ivars (KI/EAB) > Sent: Thursday, April 14, 2005 8:13 AM > To: Gonzalo Camarillo (JO/LMF); Paul Kyzivat > Cc: SIMPLE mailing list > Subject: RE: [Simple] message-sessions-10 WGLC: unique > message ID and failed connections? > > Paul, Gonzalo: > > I agree completely with Gonzalo's comment.
