I use a combination of "notmuch" and "notes". It's reliable in the
sense that you mean about surviving file shuffling, because both link
based on a MailID. The hybrid mail structure is forced on me by the
requirements of my employer (they require the use of Lotus Notes) and
separation of my personal mail. I don't recommend it if you have any
My "notmuch" is set up with mail in various MailDir structures. That's
all covered in notmuch.el. I think it would be equally robust for all
the different structures that notmuch can use.
I could add a link type for Lotus Notes because it has a command
line mode that you can invoke specifying the Notes mail ID. Drag and drop
provides that information. The invocation of:
/cygdrive/c/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/Lotus/Notes/notes
will bring up that mail ID. Setup and use is awkward, but not hopeless.
I drag the mail into an Emacs window, then run a bit of lisp to convert
the windows link into an org-mode link format.
