It sounds as if you're considering every possible address under your
domain to be a valid address. In the long run, this is going to kill you
independent of the message-id problem you described. One quick check
run by a spammer and you'll be recieving spam to tens of thousands of
"e-mail addresses" on your server.
Just MHO, of course, but you're much better off immediately rejecting
e-mail to addresses not known to be valid. Then you will never have to
deal withh it.
