Well, I can tell you that where I work (not for Philips actually, don't
blame them.) 15,000 other people work. And yes, we do get sent word
documents by the mass. The address list they use for that purpose is split
on alphabet. The result is that the word document is not the biggest part,
the header is: 300KB just for the letter k. Add to that the size of the
body and multiply by 15,000 <sigh>
