The thread was broken by Dennis' mail because it missed the
"In-Reply-To" or "References" header. I don't know if that was a
misconfigured mail client (Outlook is able to handle that) or a
deliberate action from Dennis because he wanted to start a new thread.

I consider mail clients that only thread by subject as broken. My client
(Thunderbird) threads by Reference headers and can be configured to
*also* thread by subject, but I switched that off.
