You are missing a point - you took a database and want to test it with real
messages. Nobody gave you explicit permission to use their email. I would be
very surprised to receive any mail from unknown Bugzilla install just
because I'm CCed on more than 1k bugs and someone is testing something.

This is the idea. I don't know what you want to test with bugmail enabled.
Sending of mails? Jobqueue.pl script?
TDF mailserver infrastructure? Send the bugmails to mailserver, but not to
the people.

Nice example of big Bugzilla infrasctructure is here =

Seems you have  timetrackinggroup defined. If you want to disable it - just
change to empty value.

Please compare bug page on freedesktop and test install. Noticed a
difference? I still don't know if this diff is because you want to have
default Bugzilla UI or just because you do not have template changes copied
from FDO install.
Best regards.
