I do not know how that might be related to the DCC.  The DCC does not
involve moving email over networks except the normal delivery of mail.

As that tried to say, the DCC client-to-server traffic for 100K mail
messages is about 10 MBytes.  The server-to-client traffic is less
and perhaps 4 MBytes.  These numbers largely independent of the sizes
of the mail messages or the number of addressees.

It is possible to deal with more than 100K email messages/day with a
fraction of a T1, but I doubt many are doing that today.  If you have
enough users to have 100K mail messages/day, you'll probaby want at
least a fraction of a T3 for your HTTP traffic.

Again, if you care, please read
