Organize by subject / Merge threads / Parent threads?

Reported by fnurl | February 13th, 2016 @ 12:14 PM

Sometimes, I get different thread-ids on messages that have forked (I believe):

e.g. if I am sender A:

  • A composes new message msg1 sending to B, C, D and E
    • B replies to msg1 with msg2 sending to A, C, D, E
      • D replies to msg2 with msg7 sending to A, B, C, E
    • C replies to msg1 with msg3 sending to A
      • A replies to msg3 with msg4 sending to C
  • D forwards msg1 as msg4 sending to F
  • F replies to msg4 with msg5 sending to A, B, C, D, E
    • E replies to msg5 with msg6 sending to A, B, C, D, F

If I am A, I am involved in be getting the following messages:

  • msg2, msg7, msg3, msg4, msg5, msg6

These will however not all belong to the same thread-id if I am correct? But they would have similar subject lines (Re: / Fwd: original subject). Is it possible to manually merge thread-ids?

Otherwise, in the future, perhaps it would be possible to do some of the following:

  • have an option to "Organize by Subject"
  • have an option to "Organize by Thread and Subject" and/or
  • implement a parent-thread-id for each thread-id?

    Something like “Organize by Subject” is still planned (group threading), but I haven't worked on it yet.

    (What you describe is currently expected behavior due to the strict threading model in MailMate.)
