By my logs, more bandwidth is used by random noise (scans for IIS holes,
popup spam, etc) than by TOTAL email, not to mention message
duplicates. Is that so unusual? Or are people worrying about a small
problem again and ignoring the biggies?

I receive over 10 viruses for every legitimate or spam email. So yes, I see
this as at best a very weak solution to unwanted bandwidth utilization. The
intent as I see it is more to provide a convenience feature.
