There are AFAIR two concerns with server autoarchive:
1. Privacy issues.
2. Archiving e2e encrypted messages.

Solution 1:
Provide server with a public key for use when archiving.
Only private key holder can read messages retrieved from archive.

Solution 2:
Store e2e decryption key along with the conversation.
Client can encrypt the key-storing message with a public key (solution
1) before storing in archive, to protect the decryption key itself.
