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.
