It's needed for a robot: the user receives the mail with the message about
some blocked content and forwards this to a ticket system. A robot then takes
such a ticket and scans the blocked attachments against some different virus
scanners and - if clean - delivers the attachment. We need the recipient[s]
for this robot.

I filed a report: and I included
a small patch to demonstrate the requirement.
