The reason is the waste of resources, servers are quite busy with email 
Writing files to disk is expensive (all stuff is in memory now, no any 
disk i/o),
writing files into memory and frequent postprocessing them with script 
is an alternative,
but it does not look elegant and needs more memory.

I will look, thanks.

I understand that. Did not know about qmail.

I use postfix+dccm, I do not know yet when postfix writes message-id, 
before or after milter.
I do not see any other appropriate keys. Probably, I could create one 
with milter before dccm. Probably, the dcc checksum could be the key itself.

Any advice about code hook place?
