First: Right now, kmail can only sort with one field, not 2.
Threading is independent though. Enable it in the prefences (it would not
help you when telling you the german way to the option, would it?)
Threading in kmail is not perfect though, especially when a header is longer
than the default line width and therefor continues on the next line.
