Hi David,

I do not think it is possible.
You should set pathhost: for your feeds with innd.
As for nnrpd, the second part of the Message-ID is generated with that:

    if ((domain != NULL && innconf->domain == NULL) ||
    (domain != NULL && innconf->domain != NULL
         && strcmp(domain, innconf->domain) != 0)) {
    p = domain;
    } else {
    if ((p = GetFQDN(domain)) == NULL)
        return NULL;

so if you do not put domain: in readers.conf, it will not work ("domain" is
PERMaccessconf->domain here, that is to say the domain: parameter in readers.conf
if not overriden by domain: in inn.conf but in that case, it must be different).

It is not difficult to add a domain: parameter in readers.conf :-)

Otherwise, you can just patch your own lib/genid.c to do that.  Also easy,
according to the excerpt above.
