Every message generated by Conversant is assigned an internet-wide unique message ID, per some RFC/spec whose number I can't currently remember. This is the message id that appears in the headers of emails send out by Conversant, etc.

Conversant will do this based on the server's hostname by default -- but you can use this pref to override that and have message id's that use different hostname for different conversations.

It's not something you or any of your users should really see any effect from one way or another.
