None, yet the mail fails because of it.

1:396/1 and 1:351/1

A futher example of poor MSGID implementation within Fidonet is that
some authors read those *optional* standards (FTS-0009, circa 1991) as
meaning unique ID's *within the relevant echo*. 1:396/1 passes those
along to me, yet ifmail makes them relevant to the entire network
and I end up with "dupes" that really aren't dupes at all.
