Could you explain the difference between this implementation and


There are exactly two "threads" as you put it,

  "NEW ISSUE: EPR comparison rule doesn't support Web services gateways/routers"
  "NEW ISSUE: EPR comparison rule doesn't support Web services gateways/routers [i048]"

Threading (as defined in RFC 2822, 3.6.4) is something quite different,


Such presentation depends on user agents providing proper In-Reply-To,
References, and Message-Id headers; if they do not, user agents have to
guess what the parent message of a message might be. Your user agent
does not provide such headers; it would be really valuable if you could
either change its configuration or switch to a different user agent.
