Using Outlook 2000 or Outlook 2003, I'm trying to create a unique hyperlink to a message in a mailbox's inbox.  Currently, I'm doing it like this:

Outlook://Mailbox - MyMailbox/Inbox/~SubjectofMessage

Where "MyMailbox" is a specific mailbox, and "SubjectofMessage" is the subject.  This works fine, however some items in the same mailbox have the same subject.  So if there are 10 items all with the same subject, all the links will just open the first item.

Is there a way around this?  Some unique identifier that I can put in the link to identify the message and open specific ones with the same subject?
