Does the Microsoft Mail App add a Message-ID Email Header

EK 1 Reputation point

When sending emails from the Microsoft Mail App (Win10Pro,21H2) to gmail-recipients, these emails are not accepted since a few weeks, as it seems that this Mail App does not add a Message-ID in the email header which the gmail-side seems to require.
( I checked this in my Webclient , where I can see the full header).

Reading some other Q&A here, I see that Outlook add this Message-ID.

I allready tried deinstalling/installing the Mail-App, and updating Windows completely, but still the Mail-App does not add the Message-ID.

Is there any way to set up the Mail App in such a way as to add a Message-ID?

Thank you very much in advance.

Kind regards

    There is no requirement that mail servers or clients add a message-id , although they should. If Gmail rejects these, there isnt much you can do other than to not use the Windows Mail client if its not doing the right thing.

    To eliminate the error/rejection from Google you are getting, make sure your domain is authenticated by adding a valid SPF record on your domain. If you are not authenticated, GMail will scrutenize your email. The originating application should add a message-id, but it isn't required. Google will add one, but without being authenticating, will usually opt to reject your email instead.
