Subject: [PATCH] extmsg: shorten partial Message-IDs minimum to 14
Date: Fri,  2 Sep 2022 09:12:54 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Gnus seems to start Message-IDs with 10 random characters
followed by ".fsf@$DOMAIN".  In case of mis-linkification or
mis-selection from stopping at the `@', ensuring the first 14
characters are accepted as a search parameter for the truncated
Message-ID improves usability.
