That was quick, thank you!

Sorry for this very long reply... I like to keep my email inbox small,
when I read emails I capture todos, ideas, somedays, etc that pop up
from reading them in my orgmode where I keep all
non-processed stuff (according to my implementation of GTD :). Then I
file away the email in some folder for reference and seldom move it
again. So, I think I only need to update the links in, that
should take care of most of my broken links.

Hmmm, yes this seems to be a good move. :) I actually have been using
mairix earlier for searching but stopped using it... I should really
look into this again. Thanks!
