Try reading this discussion using the newsgroup on sunsite.auc.dk, I
think Outlook does the right thing for newsgroups...

At Ludus Design (the company me and a few friends started), we have
discussion groups, and the Windows developers kept wrecking the
threading all the time. We did isolate the problem to Outlook not
setting the "In-Reply-To:" header or some thing similar... Some other
Windows MUAs have the same problem, but others have it right. Eudora
does it wrong also, but I think Pegasus is okay. It's been a while,
everybody converted to Netscape or read the discussions thru newsgroups

Maybe it isn't, it wouldn't surprise me from Outlook. :-|

I see... Scandinavian languages just beat me! I can take some german,
but not much (I thought that "No ausgang" in the tram stations meant "No
Exit"!)... :-)
