* Have a separate email address for each newsletter.
 
** Public access to the email addresses will need to be limited to prevent random spam from entering the archives.
 
*** Spam could also be prevented by maintaining a blacklist. (this also keeps out script kiddies)
 
** Have a way for people to forward past 'issues' of newsletters. Submitted newsletter issues can be verified using copies from multiple submitters.
 
* Problem: a lot of newsletters require you to click a confirmation link in an email. Some solutions:
 
** Make the archiving tools search the email content for confirmation links and follow them.
 
** Have a password protected page where people can click confirm links.
 
*** First solution is better, but the second one could be used if the bot fails to properly follow the confirmation link.
 
* Problem: some newsletters require the initial email to be replied to for confirmation.
 
** Solution: Make the archiving tools auto-reply to the first email received from a newsletter.
 
* Download image URLs in each email with wget.
 
* Upload received emails to IA in [[ArchiveBot]]-like GO packs, and separate files by the receiving address.
 
* Provide an interface for reading archived emails.
 
* Have a bot crawl the web looking for more newsletters.
 
** Should it automatically create a new email address and try signing up for newsletters, or should there be some sort of human intervention?
 
* Problem: if unsubscribe links are made public and followed, the archiving address will be unsubscribed.
 
** Maybe unsubscribe links could be removed from each email and the unsubscribe link changed to http://example.com or http://archiveteam.org?
 
*** Upload darkened copies of the original emails to IA along with the modified ones.
 
* Have a list of newsletters currently being saved to prevent saving multiple copies of the same newsletter.
