FYI, "Start a new thread" does not mean "reply to a message in an
existing thread and then change the subject line." A new thread consists
of actually creating a new message (however your mail client does that).

The reason this is important is that those of us who actually use
threaded mail readers will see (or quite possibly not see) your message
buried in the middle of another thread with a totally unrelated topic.
In fact, thunderbird 3 has a great new feature where you can easily
delete a whole thread unread with one click.

hope this helps,

Doug (he must really be a CEO)
