I just tried creating a note in Leopard Apple Mail and it supports
bulleted lists (Format ▸ Lists ▸ Inserted Bulleted List). This note
was placed in the Inbox. I'm guessing the same can be done on Lion, but
I cannot test that right now. I also tried creating a note on my iPhone
and that note appeared in a special Notes mailbox within my IMAP
Well, the main point of the above is that it is necessary to do some
reengineering to support notes since it is not a documented format (as
far as I know). Also, the notes are saved as HTML which is not supported
by MailMate when editing although that part could perhaps be handled by
some Markdown <-> HTML conversion.
The following is the raw version of the note created on the iPhone:

My first note...<div><br></div>
It seems quite straightforward to create such a message, but it would
have been nice if it had been `text/plain` instead of `text/html`. I
tried manually creating a `text/plain` note and it did appear on my
iPhone, but it was converted to `text/html` when I edited it.
I'll give it some more thought. Comments are welcome if anyone has some
insight in how Apples notes work.
