Funny enough, I use mutt as well, and I also saw the message as part
of an existing thread.  The mail that Andrew Hagen sent appeared as a
reply to a mail by Alvin Oga.  A quick look at the headers reveals
that Alvin had the following header:

Message-ID: <[🔎] Pine.LNX.3.96.1010503160605.3768A-100000@Maggie.Linux-Consulting.com> 

and in Andrew's mail:

In-Reply-To: <[🔎] Pine.LNX.3.96.1010503160605.3768A-100000@Maggie.Linux-Consulting.com>

That seems to be why its threaded under an existing discussion on my
machine, but I'm interested as to why its showing up as a new topic on
yours.  Do you know of any mutt setting that would do this?
