As a network administrator I should say this: What?! An email message
doesn't take a lot of bandwith. It's just around a couple of bytes big.
HTML messages including pictures are mostly around 1000x to 1500x bigger
than their e-mail counterpart.

It should clean up their mailbox but would not save bandwith.

Sure, most people aren't on dialup anymore, but that's no reason to waste bandwidth.  Same thing that happened with every windoze application out there, bloat bloat bloat.  Anybody remember how fast Wordstar was?.. ;-)
