This may not avoid messing with email complexity in the long run either. 
  For example, what about attachments? HTML mail <shudder>?  In any 
case, you'll probably want to arrange things so that mail message you 
store in the database can be accessed using a mail reader rather than 
trying to have your CRM software display the message.
