I don't know whether E6 uses in-reply-to header. I doubt. Earlier
versions group posts (threads) simply by matching subject. That work
fine for me.
Actually, I am not sure whether the in-reply-to headers can be easily
used for following threads.

How do the above form a readily definable thread? These three are
from my reply to an earlier post, followed by your reply to mine,
followed by your reply to yourself. And it could have been that more
than one person replied to any of these in parallel and any of these
replies could have one or more replies of their own. Throw in a
complication of messages arriving not necessarily in the order they
were sent and it is a mess IMHO.
