I request an API (secure of course with credentials) that allows one to obtain and archive the messages.
- One obvious way would be to impart an IMAP overlay (read only) to the message database that would create a folder for each conversation, with the list of messages in the folder corresponding to the text messages. Secure IMAP access using existing Anywhere credentials should be sufficient to protect it at last as well as the Anywhere app.
2)) A simpler way might be a RESTful interface which allows polling for contents (perhaps using RSS.) With this (properly credentialed and secure) I could create a local app that implements an IMAP overlay and integrate it into my already existing email archival process.
I am willing to help if necessary - if using method #2, I would make the companion app available under some suitably unrestricted FOSS license, as necessary.
