At 1.7 million email a day that's at very most 1 FP in 16 years, which
would suggest you have had less than 1 FP since SA was released.

I think it would be very difficult to spot an FP that way. The FPs I've
seen are mostly generated by web-servers, and they are mostly
"first-contact". And even if the displayed name is recognisable it's
usually the subject that makes the FP stand-out.
