The settings API in V4 provides a more direct translation of the settings as stored in the YouMail system. The V3 API attempted to simplify a number of settings, and as our systems were extended and upgraded it became more of a liability.

Note: The settings API does not expose mailbox status information other than that that can be directly inferred from the current value of any specific setting. It is used to control the behavior of the mailbox.

An HTTP GET of settings will return a document that matches the above diagram. Each node will contain the various settings that apply to that node. There are NO settings directly parented to the settings element.
