If thats not a secret, what is the reason why you can't be sure of things with
just attaching a trusted timestamp header for each mail? Someone could edit or
delete those mails? Well, if you'd be using a LDA like maildrop, you could
easily just call some bash script or direct command to make a new commit as
your VCS provide... After each newly arrived message. (I don't know about
moved / deleted messages hooks!) But... That is quite a heavyweight solution.
Can there be any other reason to use it than because someone could delete or
change a mail without your knowledge?
