It seems I have underestimated the MessageMapper a litlle bit. I have
some questions regarding the state of a Message object.

1. I have only access to the Message and Mailbox interfaces when
saving/deleting messages?
2. When I wish to save the contents of a message, the message size is
known (BodyOctets and fullContentOctets) or I have to get the size by
counting the fields?
3. The mailboxUID field of Message is the same as the UID of the
mailbox object that is also received as a parameter (take for example
delete() )?
4. What exactly are Properties from JPAMessage implementation and why
is order important? Are they the header fields?

This will influence my design. I read somewhere that the maximum cell
size in HBase is suggested to be around 10MB. We have two options:
1. split the message in more cells
2. store a reference to a message and the actual message directly in HDFS.

They both present chalenges, but I think the first option cen be
implemented faster.
