You'll get useless numbers.

Mailman hands off to the MTA.  The MTA hands off to an MX (primary,
secondary, whatever).  Some number of transits later, and it can be
quite large, the messages arrives at a mailbox, is bounced, or silently

Now what do you want to metricise?  The Mailman hand-off to the MTA?
The MTA hand-off to a remote MX?  For what MTA?
