For your goal it might be worthwhile not to target email, but rather
posting and reading to and from a simpler protocol like eg. (simplified)
HTTP.  Then "notecase" would use that a canonical go-between or adaptor.
The host could email what an application sends, but also classify or
store it, thus taking load and complexity of "notecase".  There are many
standard tools for handling emails, why put that particular protocol
into a specialized application?
