I can imagine a number of mail-enabled applications that perform
polling/voting and wish to send out unique ballot numbers or other
identifiers. If would be nice if the sending client application did not
have to send each of the many separate messages as part of "submission".
Note I use a broader definition of submission than simply supporting
end-user thick-weight clients. I classify any useful service on behalf of a
sending application (which may be a standard email client) as part of the
conceptual submission server.

Typical mail clients probably don't need this.
that's my guess also, but I'd like to hear from client implementors.
