Hi Alan

Thanks for your answer.

Yes, that's given. I don't use any other client.

Hmm. This would annihilate the effect, right? It is like not using
gnus-registry at all and just change all links manually. I still have
the feeling that gnus-registry doesn't work at all for me. The cache
file is there (~/Mail/.gnus-registry.eld) and it updates regularly. Only
the org-links don't seem to care about message-IDs.
