interesting, why the requirement to not hold the message in memory?

I dont trust the users to know the difference. Its hard enough for them 
to understand that a message with a subject that starts {SPAM?} is 
probably spam. "Hey, here's an idea, why dont you set up a filter to 
move all that marked mail to a junk folder?" <blank look>

oh dear, my cynicism is showing through... and I'm not even the 
postmaster (thank goodness!)
