I am not going to hazard a guess as to just what your correspondent was trying
to do.  That often eludes my ken.

However, for the original or intended sense of a 'cid' URL and the Content-ID
header it is based on, please consult RFC-2392 and RFC-2045.  

I just succeeded in retrieving RFC-2392 by putting "RFC-2392" as the search
string in Google and hitting the "I'm feeling lucky" option.  YMMV.  Good
luck.
