He means that your mailer starts messages with "... YOU wrote", even

All incoming packets will count against your data cap, regardless of
whether or not your machine accepts them.

If you want an apache-only solution, you can do

  order deny, allow
  deny from all
  allow from .nz

machines with a .nz might actually be located overseas.
