NAME

     mgenmid — generate a Message-ID

SYNOPSIS

     mgenmid

DESCRIPTION

     mgenmid generates and prints a unique Message-ID.  The Message-ID consists of an encoded
     timestamp, a random value, and a fully qualified domain name.

     The fully qualified domain name is arrived at by:

     1.   Using ‘FQDN:’ from ${MBLAZE:-$HOME/.mblaze}/profile (if set).

     2.   Resolving the current hostname.

     3.   Using the domain component of the mail address in ‘Local-Mailbox:’ from
          ${MBLAZE:-$HOME/.mblaze}/profile (if set).

     If these steps don't result in a fully qualified domain name, mgenmid fails.

EXIT STATUS

     The mgenmid utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
