Right, the message ID can be provided by the client and it potentially
seriously breaks the NNTP protocol for the server to override the client's
choice of message ID.  (The server doesn't know whether the client is
offering the same message ID to multiple servers.)

You can probably do something with a posting filter by editing the
headers, but there isn't (and won't be) a built-in option for changing the
message ID because it's a protocol violation and could result in duplicate
messages (in scenarios that you probably aren't worried about).
