Technically, there isn't anything wrong with the Message-ID. It appears
Astraweb impose limits on the Message-IDs, but I haven't found anything
in their FAQ or on the Support pages as to what limits that might be.

No, since leafnode may post to several upstream servers, and these must
be able to identify identical posts in order to not propagate articles
they already have, and the Message-ID is crucial for that purpose.

Can you ask the Astraweb support staff what their limits WRT Message-ID
format are and why they validate the Message-ID in the first place? Ask
them for a quotable answer and their agreement to your publishing their
reply here, please.
