NAME
     mgenmid --	generate a Message-ID

SYNOPSIS
     mgenmid

DESCRIPTION
     mgenmid generates and prints a unique Message-ID.	The Message-ID con-
     sists of an encrypted timestamp, a	random value, and a fully qualified
     domain name.

     The fully qualified domain	name is	arrived	at by:

     1.	  Using	`FQDN:'	from ${MBLAZE:-$HOME/.mblaze}/profile (if set).

     2.	  Resolving the	current	hostname.

     3.	  Using	the domain component of	the mail address in `Local-Mailbox:'
	  from ${MBLAZE:-$HOME/.mblaze}/profile	(if set).

     If	these steps don't result in a fully qualified domain name, mgenmid
     fails.

EXIT STATUS
     The mgenmid utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error	occurs.
