yes that was similar to what I did, before I discovered mairix and
orgmode's link types. Kudos to Uday Reddy who hinted this solution to
me back in 2011.

After setting up a working mairix and mairix mode, I wrote a new
link type. See my blog posts from 2011/2012

So when capturing a task from a message in vm, a link with a mairix
search using the message id will be created.

Now following/opening that link via orgmode will execute a mairix
search and you will get the mairix-search-file in vm with that
message, well actually the whole thread as mairix sees it.

Note that I am not longer runing (mairix-update-databse) in the link
type function, but updating the mairix databse via cron...

Hope this helps, it's now a very important part in my everyday work.
