Subject RE: Mail thread headers (was Re: source resolving in 2.2)

hmmm.. I took a look and you can group messages in outlook by "conversation"
which seems to use in-reply-to to have a normal thread view

Outlook 2000 *does*

I was getting frustrated I was not getting any replies to a post i made... I
was lazy and just hit reply to an existing message to get the address and
wiped out the original text. This thread made me look.. and it does send
"in-Reply-to"

Outlook doesn't maintain post relationships. The 'thread view' in
Outlook just consists of a long list of mails of the same thread, then
sorted by date. It is less verbose but - at least if the thread is not
too long - sufficient.
