[leafnode-list] <Message-IDs>

Hmf.  Accidentally sent.

We are using leafnode for local groups only.  When we forward messages,
Outlook Express puts a news hyperlink in the body, as follows:

"Dennis W. Bulgrien" <dbulgrien@xxxxxxxx> wrote in message
> Hi all...

The message header for the example follows:

From: "Dennis W. Bulgrien" <dbulgrien@xxxxxxxx>

Subject: Greetings

You may not be able to see it, but Outlook automatically converts it to a
hyperlink, underlined blue text.  The problem it, Outlook is not smart
enough to underscore all of it.  The link from the 'n' in news: to the 'm'
in .com gets underlined but the greater-than '>' is not.  When the link it
clicked Outlook is unable to retrieve the requested message.

I know this is a bug in Outlook, but is there a way to change the delimiters
that leafnode uses to avoid this problem?
