Hello everybody,
This is a problem which occurs for me very often. Kmail as well as Evolution 
determine the thread by only the messag- id. This is for tech people very 
realistic, because you don't want create a new thread by replying on a 
threaded message.

This is different for, let's say, "normal" people (in this case, I'm also not 
normal ;) ). I have many friends which create a new email to a group of 
persons, just by replying on an older thread and changing the subject. This is 
not the expected way for Kmail.
E.g. Gmail handles these emails correctly, but Kmail not. I think it's a very 
good idea to make an option to determine new threads by both thread id and the 
subject of the mail.

I can already predict some users say I have to teach all my friend to handle 
email correctly, but this is not the desired option. So please change this
