All of the checksums and counts for a message can be obtained with
`dccproc -QC`.  -C produces the checksums, and -Q avoids adding noise
to the counts at the server.  The counts obtained with `dccproc -Q`
might be larger than those seen by dccm.

As others pointed out, the fuzzy checksums are likely to be the same
for some classes of mail, and so it might be best to use only the "Body"
checksum.  It ignores whitespace and '=' characters.
