Also - the solution is IWP hosted off site. Web only.
Users normally are on the same computer but may not always and check their web mail via hosted web client (nothing local). They also want to be able to 'forward' from mobile devices.
My plan is to also have an 'inbox' for the user to check what they have sent to FM to make sure it is related to the proper client.

Key feature would be that the staff (users of Filemaker) can use any email client to pick the messages they want to add to filemaker and then 'forward/send' to Filemaker with only the name of the Contact in the subject field.
we do not want to import all messages into Filemaker via imap or smtp. Only selected emails the staff member see worthy of archiving.
All you need to do is to create an email account for the database, eg, email@example.com. Staff can forward the selected email to that email account. It can be collected by FileMaker, You’ll need to use one of the email plug-ins to get FMPro to collect mail.
I needed to read more on features of the plugins and didnt think it though - of course there would have to be a separate FM email account. I think with some scripting these two products below may have what i need.
I also like the idea of sending a FM record as a PDF.
email plugins - both have demo trials
