Actually, it's not an EMail address. You're right it's not a link.

It's a message ID.

If you look at the headers in the message you sent, you'll find:

In-Reply-To: <>
References: <>
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=3DISO-8859-1; delsp=3Dyes; format=3Dflowed
Message-Id: <>

The Message-Id: line gives an ID to your message.=20

Your mail system generates different message IDs than uebayasi's sytem=20
did, so they look a little different. Yours uses lots of hex,
uses decimal. But it all serves the same purpose.

The advantage of using a message ID from an EMail for identifying the=20
EMail is that it is a unique property of the message. Regardless of the=20
system that archives the EMail, the message ID stays the same. So you can=
always find the right message.

Take care,
