That's too late, I've already received the mails.

How about not sending the emails at all, unless someone requests it?

When I maintain a package, I am fully aware that I will receive emails to
<pkg>@packages.debian.org, and that I will receive email from the BTS about my
package.  Those mail sources go with maintaining the package.

However, you are abusing the system, and sending me spam that will not help me
in maintaining my package.  Your spam is not something that has any bearing on
the maintenance of my package.  I can do nothing with the spam I get from you.

You don't need to build a db.
