Depending on how much of the message store API you mean, you're looking at
atleast index.c, append.c, and mailbox.c.

If you want to worry about the mailbox list, mboxlist.c.

If you want seen state as well, seen_db.c.

You'll probably want to look at user.c as well.

A very large amount of work.

I wouldn't be surprised if alot of the other code has assumptions about
the implementation of the mail store in it that will break if you try to
change its implemenation, so the above list is just a start.
