For some reason, Professional's (aka Sean's) posts consistently thread

Very curious.  I just checked my most recent reply (prior to this one), 
which was in  the "copy of all mails to one user" thread, and the 
In-Reply-To: is correct there as well.

FWIW, Eudora includes thread references, but isn't itself a threaded MUA: 
message tracking within the app is by subject in a simple linear mailbox view.

What else is used for threading?

MS mailers include a "Thread-index:" header.  I don't know of any other 
mailer that sets that or uses it.

References: might be used.  I find it mildly irritating when people use a 
reply to a different thread to start a new discussion, but all these old 
references come along for the ride, when in fact they've got nothing to do 
with the tangent.
