Actually it should do.
What distribution are you using (assuming you use binary packages)?
Which version of KMail/KDE is it?

This is strange. Can you check whether the web mail software keeps the proper 
references intact. Some clients unfortunately do not support mail threading 
and destroy the reply references. Though I never heard of a web mail 
interface doing so.
