First you need to understand what mairix does:


org-mairix lets you create hyperlinks which will execute arbitrary
mairix searches on your mail archives, which can be quite complex,
e.g. all mails from a particular mailing list between 6 and 2 months
ago containing the word "foo" but not the word "bar".

I use mutt not gnus, but I'm guessing all you are doing right now is
inserting links to single mails?

Also please note that mutt does not index mail archives by Message-ID
so it does not have the ability to jump directly a particular message
by Message-ID.
