Right! In fact both the Hubs I feed from have broken AllFix software.
Point it out to them and all you'll get is a slow blink; they don't
understand (nor do I) why an RFC-style address is in there. It's just
as broken as they are. Wrong network.

As a gateway system I would like to see all the messages that I gate
stamped with my FTN address in the MSGID. The messages carry my Origin,
and I am responsible for their being (policy4). In a sense, those
messages originate from my system as far as Fido is concerned. I keep
the original RFC Message-ID in a kludge line.
