Date: Fri, 24 Jul 2020 08:11:24 -0400 Message-ID: <87eep12jv7.fsf@dick> (raw) In-Reply-To: <email@example.com> (Uwe Brauer's message of "Fri, 24 Jul 2020 11:00:22 +0200") nnml-find-group-number takes a second `server` argument, which you might hardcode to empty string, but like all things gnus, it's fragile. Under the info node "Summary Buffer -> Finding the Parent", some clues are given > Most of the mail back ends support fetching by ‘Message-ID’, but > do not do a particularly excellent job at it. That is, > ‘nnmbox’, ‘nnbabyl’, ‘nnmaildir’, ‘nnml’, are able to locate > articles from any groups, while ‘nnfolder’, and ‘nnimap’ are > only able to locate articles that have been posted to the > current group. ‘nnmh’ does not support this at all. I use nnimap but all my attempts at `M-x gnus-summary-refer-article` failed. The info node goes on to say, > Fortunately, the special ‘nnregistry’ back end is able to locate > articles in any groups, regardless of their back end (*note > fetching by ‘Message-ID’ using the registry: Registry Article > Refer Method.). This didn't work for me either, but I didn't try very hard. As the Message-Id looks like <firstname.lastname@example.org>, it seems unwieldy to get at a message from its Message-Id.
