Hi Kai

I would love to but I'm not sure what has changed. I am using the same  
Mac Mail app that I was in Feb (Although there might have been an  
update to it that I have not recognised).

The copy that I received had the following References header:
References: 	<49F49DFD.9070901 at openenterprise.ca> <49F4A8A7.9060109 at ecs.soton.ac.uk 
 > <EMEW3|97d11d78e569a39a16dcaae78aa2e574l3PJWG0bMailScanner|ecs.soton.ac.uk|060109 at ecs.soton.ac.uk 
 > <20090426185257.2AC1F1702E at out-b.mx.mail-launder.com>

Which looks ok to me and should allow threading, certainly Mail has  
not broken the thread at my end. Other than to say sorry, I'm not sure  
what else to kick at the moment.
