How could it? The splitting is done *well before MS gets it*... Sure,
for a mailstore server of some kind, like M-Sexchange, it's rather
simple to determine this (although I'm pretty sure that M-Sex doesn't
do this... The mails end up in different mailstores after all), but
that is not what you've got here. MS don't have any "memory" to speak
