Using the Distributed Checksum Clearinghouse, MTAs can report the checksums for all messages they receive and be notified when a checksum has already been reported by many other systems." Obviously there are issues with something like this (especially mailing lists, and worms that do attachments). I suspect spammers would just include a counter to break checksums tho."
