>From observations of Debian mailing lists, threading is based on the 
References in the header. When a MUA composes a reply, the References 
and Message-ID of the message replied to, are concatenated and 
included as the new References in the header of the new message.  Mail 
in S3 and in A2O (my name for the Oberon subsystem in A2) doesn't do 
that.  Likely this is why threading is absent.  References can be 
included manually; I've done that in this reply. Hopefully you see the 
connection to your message. (?)

Adding References handling to Mail is possible and worth doing.  It's 
now on my mental list of required bug-fixes.  Currently I'm working on 
another bug and won't be fixing threading this week.

About three years ago instructions here worked.  Haven't tried since.

At least once I upgraded an installation, forgot to look for changes in 
Configuration.XML and wondered why something no longer worked.
For example there was a new parameter in Fox for memory address 
width and the default was added to Configuration.XML.  With the old 
Configuration.XML, without the new parameter, Fox didn't work as 
expected.  CONCLUSION: compare old configurations  to the latest in 
the repository.

I have to stay focussed on this one bug-fix until it's finished.  Then 
I might think about A2 again.  Obviously instructions should be added 
to the wikibook.
