I am wondering what the best way to store information is.. we have a script that downloads mail from an IMAP server at set intervals.

We need to store  the   To, From, Date/time, Body (HTML),Body (Plain Text), Company ID

I have been browsing the best way whether Mysql / DynamoDB NoSQL kind of solution is best.

What would you guys advise to be a way to store this information for read access.

If so what field types would be the best to use?
