Then you fix the broken email clients, not bodge the mailserver to cope :)
The best ones are when you get foreign languages sticking localised
versions of "Re:" in.

Mutt shows all my emails in a nice tree, so all replies go under the
first email of the thread. Makes reading big mailing lists a pain-free
experience, just like USENET. This is why it's mega-important to always
reply to a thread, not just start one with the same subject, and to
never, ever reply to a thread, change the subject line, and start
talking about something different.
