I'm having very mixed results with gnus-registry, and I'm still looking
for a better solution. In the meantime:
- make sure the message is moved from inside gnus, it seems it's
required to be tracked by the registry;
- if you cannot get to the message, try to search for it (I use notmuch,
which works nicely), figure out the mailbox name, and you can then
manually fix the link by changing the mailbox name there. I use stable
mailboxes for this: archive is for the current month, otherwise the
message is in "old/year/month". Searches and links let me get to
messages really easily.
