Works in Evolution.



The bottom line being Michelle's message. Since Michelle's referenced a
couple of other references, one of which had a myriad of references
(great-great-great-grandfather was listed). This is why it still worked.
There are a couple of MUAs that are broken and only thread on subject
line and well also strip the references or only include snippets of the
message IDs in "Reference:"

Lets just complain about that certain commercial MUA. I like to complain
about it and its Corporation that authors it.
