Archiving all the email newsletters.

TODO TODO TODO

Ideas

  • Have a separate email address for each newsletter.
    • Have a page where people can create new email accounts and sign them up for newsletters.
    • Public access to the email addresses will need to be limited to prevent random spam from entering the archives.
  • 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.
  • Upload received emails to IA in ArchiveBot-like GO packs, and separate files by the receiving account.
  • Provide an interface for reading archived emails.
  • Have a bot crawl the web looking for more newsletters.
