That means the registry would not solve my problem, really.

Sometimes I'll keep mails "task storage" for weeks, and also like to
refer to emails for archival purposes in some cases.

It might make sense to have the chance to save searches as URLs in Org
for various things.

For the problem at hand it seems inelegant, though, as it is too reliant
on a rather complex and cpu hungry indexing system. I'd prefer things

Yes. But there might be another solution, too.

Ultimately, the problem is caused by the Gnus backend not reporting
where it stored the article. So instead of doing a search every time one
tries to access the mail, one might do a search during storing time.

This could work by hooking a routine into


that would record the message IDs of the articles moved into a temporary
list. After gnus-summary-move-article returns, the list is parsed for
the message IDs and the target group is searched for those IDs. The
resulting URLs are then saved into the Org link storage.

This would make up a "org-gnus-move-and-link-article" routine, which
could then be called directly or in the customisation that has been
posted to this list some time ago.

What do you think?
