Why don't you take a look at the definition of MIME? looks like a valid starting point. Basically, email is text, so a single CLOB should do it (yes; Clob, not Blob - just take a look at a base64 coded email)

Apart from that - how do you get your mail IN the database? I know about emails: how I can SEND FROM, but I sure would like to RECEIVE INTO the database.
