But it makes dialup user's life a lot easier without much configuration 
overhead (one extra delivery on your MTA and make your MDA set the 
'Seen' flag).

The extra headers are even useful as you'll have a copy of the message 
that's much like the real one delivered, and if you don't want them then 
configure your MDA to not archive them.
