You need to take the "Message-ID" header of the message that you're replying to, and put it into the "In-Reply-To" header of your response. That's what a standard mail client does when you reply to a message. The "In-Reply-To" header is used by clients and webmailers to identify the thread and the order of messages within that thread. I've never used Gmail or Yahoo, so I don't know if they provide a way to manually set the "In-Reply-To" header. If they don't you're out of luck, I'm afraid. By the way, I'm in a similar situation: I'm not subscribed to the lists, but I read them with a news client via an NNTP gateway. That gateway is one-way, i.e. I cannot post follow-ups to the news groups. Instead I use the reply-by- mail function of the news client. This works well, because the NNTP gateway sets the "Reply-To" back to the list's mail address (unless there already was a Reply-To header in the original mail, which is kept), and I configured my news client to copy the Message-ID into an In-Reply-To header, so it works as expected.
