  public-inbox uses Message-ID identifiers in URLs.
  One may look up messages by substituting Message-IDs
  (without the leading '<' or trailing '>') into the URL.
  Forward slash ('/') characters in the Message-IDs
  need to be escaped as "%2F" (without quotes).

  Thus, it is possible to retrieve any message by its
  Message-ID by going to:<Message-ID>/
    (without the '<' or '>')

  Message-IDs are described at:
