In a word, yes. The Internet's "Robustness Principle" says, "Be liberal 
in what you accept, and conservative in what you send." In other words, 
if you have preferences on how you deal with local mail, deal with them 
locally. Asking everyone on the Internet to adapt their way of working 
in order to fit your personal preferences is, in the politest possible 
terms, absurd.
