Instead you're getting pointless "can't start" support issues that are
solving problems that don't exist with many clients.  It would at least
be useful to improve the diagnostic message to explain what the problem
is a bit more clearly.

Another approach would be to drop the check and form the message ID
based on the domain used in the From: address in the message.  This is
the approach most systems that want to come up with a message ID but
can't get a hostname seem to use and ought to be effective enough.
