Not currently.  Do you have a suggestion for how to tell dccm and
dccd to do that?  Much of the alphabet of possible argv switches
is already used.

The reason it doesn't happen now is that that the checksums of
white-listed messages are not reported to the DCC server and so no
total target counts are available.

There should always be error messages from sendmail when that happens.
It also should never happen.

Is the problem with turning on logging for all messages with DCCM_LOG_AT=0
in /var/dcc/dcc_conf too many log files?

It would take a bunch of code to generate an X-DCC line that indicates
which checksum of the message is white-listed.
