Proposal to update Messaging API

Hi all,

 

Here is the proposal to update the current Messaging API, based on our
discussion that occurred during this week's call.

The key changes include:

 

1) Separation of interfaces based on message type.

2) New attributes such as 'status', 'priority', 'folder'.

3) Addition of 'accountID' attribute to distinguish different email
accounts.

 

Note: some missing aspects include

 

1) Search/Find/Filter capabilities

2) Folder management (e.g. Copy, Move) - Max had a simple proposal on
this which can be added I assume.

 

Thanks,
Suresh
