Feature Request: possibility to join and break threads manually

Reported by Benjamin | April 27th, 2018 @ 07:42 PM

Hi Benny!

There is a thing that just came to my mind:

Let's say I received a mail from a friend, who responded to a mail of me.
Unfortunately, the sender didn't push the "reply" button, so the mail doesn't create header fields for In-Reply-To' or 'References' and in MailMate, the conversation won't be displayed as a thread, but as two independent messages.

I know this might be a case that maybe wouldn't happen too often in real life, that's why I don't even wish for a different threading mode in MailMate. What I do wish for is a way to manually join mails together to threads. I know that the programs like mutt offer such a feature: Selected Mails can be merged to one thread and threaded mails can be even broken up (manually). The program then rewrites the header fields of these mails, so mails are then displayed correctly.

Would this be something you could imagine implementing in MailMate experimental?

Best regards
