Yeah. 13 patchsets is a lot of work to review. I was just saying, that
even though there are many patches sent, there are even more being
scheduled for submission after that, which rely on the alterations
provided by these patches. Though the pacthes dependency may change
seeing you have issues regarding some of them.)

Ok. Now I see what you meant. First I had a thought there was some
misunderstanding on your or my side, because my neomutt client didn't
show any Ids confusion. But after another maintainer complained about
the same problem I realized that the issue must be at someplace I
couldn't have noticed. Then I thought that the outgoing email server
could have changed the order of the sent emails. But it turned out the
problem was in the message Ids replacement performed by our corporate
exchange server. Please see the email I've sent in reply to the Vinod
comment regarding the emailing list Ccing. It describes what was really
wrong with the threading config.
