Hi Niklas,

The draft says
"It includes APIs ... to inspect and manipulate the folders where the messages are kept."
although it is not in the requirements section, but in the introduction.

The DAP charter foresees CRUD APIs, it seems to be essential for a variety of APIs, including also Calendar/PIM APIs. So maybe it could be done in the similar manner, i.e. with save and remove methods?

Yes, adding folder access would be useful. However, we are getting
awfully close to "file system access API", since we would nee to be able
to navigate inside message storage folders, with all the related
security issues.

I was thinking of a "message picker UI" that the browser could provide
for navigation, but perhaps having an api that allows displaying the
content of a folder is needed as well.

Note that Message folder access is not on the current list of
requirements (I mistakenly thought so myself until quite recently) (1).

I'm open for suggestions on how to approach message storage (need/no
need/ etc)

Best regards,
