Hi Peter

In the headers of your mail I find

  Message-ID: <171056647.43937.29809. at cantor.invalid>
  X-Mailer: Oberon Mail (ejz) on PC Native 05.01.2003 

and indeed the Message-ID is syntactically incorrect.

Betreff: [Oberon] syntax for eaddress implemented in ETHNO


According to a mailing list reader, messages I send have a syntax error.  
Specifically, the local-part of the Message-id ends with ".", violating RFC
specifications.  Reference  "" 
and "".

Appears that the last Strings.AppendCh(id, ".") in Mail.SendMsgId should not
be there.  I didn't check whether the code was adopted into A2. 

The person who reported the error explained that it causes a problem for his
mail to news gateway; it shouldn't be dismissed as harmless.

Any comments about this before I assign it to the bug list for "ETH Oberon /
PC Native 05.01.2003"?

Thanks,             ... Peter E.
