For a research project, I am currently looking for datasets that consists of large amounts of e-mails, text messages, or OCR-processed letters that were written as part of a conversational exchange between two people.

There are quite a few open datasets that include a (significant amount) of emails. For instance, one has the Enron dataset, the Jeb Bush dataset, and the Hillary Clinton dataset. However, these datasets are not exactly what I'm looking for.

I'd like to have a dataset that consists of a large amount of (written) conversations between exactly two people. The emails should alternate between these two people, with one email (or letter or text message) for each person, each time.

Question: do such open datasets exist? If so, where can I find them?
