I have webserver which uses external SMTP for sending mail.
(SMTP server runs Windows-HMail server )

Now I'd like to send from the script e-mail and to know what is the Message-Id of sent e-mail on the server.
If I know I can find message later on the mail-server.
But when I use PHPMailer I get back only 1 when sending is succesful.
How can I get also Message-Id ( if it is possible )  ?

I know only two ways:

1. BCC: the message to a mailbox you can parse, and extract it from the messages there.

2. Add a self generated message-id to the headers and a lot of mail servers will accept that as valid. Try it out and see if it works.
