Summary0001563: Invalid Message-ID in board voting system notifications
- notifications get a big penalty in Spamassassin (4.7 INVALID_MSGID=1.167,MSGID_NOFQDN1=2.899) and maybe other spam protection mechanisms, so at risk to be filtered and not seen by recipients
- potential interoperability problems with mail user agents

   Message-ID: <m20240606.1>

According to the format is
    msg-id = [CFWS] "<" id-left "@" id-right ">" [CFWS]

So this part is missing:
   @" id-right "
Typically a domain or a "domain-like" identifier is chosen and must be unique, not necessarily a valid hostname, e. g.
   Message-ID: <>
Steps To ReproduceSubscribe to the CAcert board mailing list and receive a notification from the CAcert board voting system
TagsNo tags attached.
