Sounds pretty good to me.
Searching manually for the ID as per above caused me some problems
I can't just paste the message ID from your link as the %2B has replaced
'+' in the ID.
Note: In gmail I can see the message ID by looking at the original message,
which I do by clicking the little right downarrow next to the message and
selecting 'show original, e.g. giving me
I've configured the wiki (edited the page Site/InterMap) to add the prefix
MsgId, which we can now use like this:
But note that %2B needs to be used to replace the '+', or it won't work.
The downside is that it's a bit longer than e.g.
It can however be made shorter using e.g. markup like this, where
parenthesis, (), are used to hide parts of the link:
