Please note that this is a feature that was deployed very recently
and is simpilar, but not the same, as the one Keith and I are discussing.
This feature is about having mboxes containing all the mails
from a given period available, in application/mbox format.
That means that the original format of the message is available
(with some rather severe restrictions to protect the information
from spammers), but it is not single messages, and it is not
negotiated at the same location as the HTML format. We are
still working on the later.
