Take a look at the mail headers in your email client (e.g. in Netscape
or Mozilla there's an option in the "View" menu to do this). If you
reply to a previous email, the mail client should include the email
ID of the onw you're replying to in the "References" header. I think
that some email clients use this to construct the threading; If you
don't reply, but simply type the same string into the "Subject" then
it may not be picked up as belonging to the same thread.
