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. -jn-
