>                 Key: INFRA-12686
>                 URL:
>             Project: Infrastructure
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Mail Archives

>            Assignee: Chris Thistlethwaite
>            Priority: Minor
> When lists.a.o was originally configured, it was set to show shortened Permalinks in
the GUI.
> These worked by truncating the internal message ID (MID) to 18 characters and then re-encoding
as base 36.
> Obviously that means it's not possible to recover the original MID, so it's not possible
to guarantee that the original message can be recovered. There may be several messages that
match the same prefix. However in this case, PonyMail currently returns the first match, which
may not be the correct one. There's no indication whether other MIDs might match.
> The configuration of lists.a.o was changed fairly early on to disable the short links.
> However there was a period of several weeks when the short links were published. Unfortunately
any such links are likely to be broken.
