since rrd tool is best at storing 'preiodic' data, you should make
sure that you set the 'step' at an interval such that users are
likely to get several mails withing that interval ... else you are
wasting storage space and would be better served with some sql data
having a separate rrd file per email address and storing in there
some data about the users mail activity once per day seems like a
sensible thing todo ...
