That can be a problem, as in that case one of the important variables
is not defined. You've got an older perl than I do. Newer perl would
have told *which* variable was undefined in that error message.

    say "$f->{msg_id} => $pid";

Here, $pid is the Message-Id of the parent. If that is undefined,
continuing is useless and something went wrong in an earlier stage.

Same for $f->{msg_id}, which is the Message-Id of the file to be
changed. Not as harmful as $pid, but still worrisome.

Not unless I can get the full files.

Somehow «my ($mid) = $hdr =~ m{^Message-Id: (.*)}mi;» did not match.
Can it be that you are re-parenting messages the do not (yet) have a

I have attached a safer version that skips files/messages with no
Message-Id and refuses to work if the parent file has no Message-Id
