inbox addon for app

Hi, i'm trying to write a sort-of inbox feature for my app.

e.g.
having a 'inbox' & 'sent items' area for each logged in user so they can
send and receive messages to people logged into the system.

i'm thinking the data model would be something like...

message
user_id
created_at
updated_at

something like that,

the state (not read, read, sent) would determine what box it should sit
in, sort of like a blog / list model to connect each message together
like a line of history.

unsure.

any thoughts?

I seem to vaugely recall someone writing about a plugin doing that kind of thing. Maybe you can save yourself a bit of time browsing the plugin lists at:

And maybe me memory is corrupted and you should just go ahead and do it yourself. It sounds like a pretty easy task :wink:
