Finally! I thought I was the only one who noticed this.

Why would the mail message-id ever cause a conflict with
the NNTP server? message-ids are supposed to be globally
unique and there is a convention (in RFC 2822?) that ensures
it (put in the FQDN and something unique to the generating
software). So I think 1) is not ugly but correct :)

2) wouldn't completely solve the problem.
I can post one copy of a message to a mailman list and
another directly to another recipient, including myself.
(I actually Cc myself on all mail I send). If mailman
does 2), the extra recipient will still be confused.
