The problem with email threading that's been around since the forums were created is still there, and seems to be getting worse for me.

Bug 2712 (http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2712). Created 2005-12-14!

The problem is that forum replies to posts don't get unique message id's, and cause the message to get threaded to an incorrect post.

That means I get irrelevant posts as replies to my messages, and more importantly some replies to my messages get associated with a different thread and therefore I totally miss them.

Is there nothing that can be done to fix the problem?

bugs 3081 and 3218 may be related to the issue.
