Let's err on the high side. Assume 100 bytes per mesage, assume every
message times out, and is thus sent twice. Assume your system ramps up to
30min/block. That means you're doing 48 blocks/day, which is 96 messages.
That's 9600 bytes per day.

That would fit onto 2 pages of normally printed text (80cols, 66rows). So,
you're generating the equivilant of 1 email message per day, per host. Ask
you admins how many email messages are run through their mailserver every
day to compare this with.
