It is currently impossible to disable these checks.
As they have been present for more than 20 years (INN 1.5.1 was already
checking the syntax of message-IDs), I am not very appealed to the idea
of relaxing them now.

Do you know the name(s) of the newsreader(s) that posted these articles?
I believe it would be better to contact their authors so that they fix
the syntax of the message-IDs they generate).
We should not encourage them to go on creating articles that generate
interoperability issues. (I bet other news servers than INN also reject
