Another bit, JFYI. RFC 2822 says:
RFC> reply messages SHOULD have "In-Reply-To:" and "References:" fields"
(the meaning of SHOULD is described in RFC 2119). Actually, I'm quite
surprised that your mail client, even if 30-year-old, does not insert
these fields, since they were described in RFC 724 as early as in 1979.
