Gmail can search by Message-ID, although the syntax is somewhat hard
to remember and it’s not exposed in the UI, you have to dig into help
to find it. The keyword is:

On the other hand, forward lookup is straightforward: on a message,
clicking the ‘More’ menu and selecting ‘Show original’ opens the
message source form in a new tab, with the Message-ID right there on
the top, you don’t even have to scan the headers to look for it.

Thunderbird lets you search by any headers. You press Ctrl+Shift+F to
open the search dialog, then, in the ‘Match all of the following’
section, you have to pull down the field selector and, if Message-ID
is not there (by default), select Customize…, enter Message-ID and
click Add. This is a one-time setup, after that, it should be listed
in the pulldown.

To look up a message’s Message-ID header, you open its source (Ctrl+U)
and look for the header.
