I use Gnus with a local cyrus imap server on my network.  Occasionally
links to mail fails when they are in subfolders of my INBOX.  (i.e. a
link to [[gnus:INBOX.SomeFolder#12345][email description]] will fail.  I
usually have Gnus session permanently open in a second frame all day
long and if I just open the SomeFolder group in Gnus then the link works
again.  So far that's my workaround for this issue - it's not very
elegant but it Works For Me(tm).
