Here is an email that describes the issue [1].

This are two examples of the way it's done by Discourse:

References: <topic/11...@discourse.gnome.org>

In-Reply-To: <topic/11...@discourse.gnome.org>
References: <topic/11...@discourse.gnome.org>

What we get is a thread

What we don't get is a complete thread tree

Subject: [Site Feedback] Email usage of discourse - threading

I (and others from Evolution mailing list) are trying to get to grips
with using discourse in a mailing list type way.
One thing I’ve noticed is that the threading information on the emails
doesn’t seem to be working. None of the message IDs in the References:
header match up with other emails from the topic. I would expect a reply
to at least mention the message ID from the messages it’s replying to,
but it doesn’t seem to.
Things are made more complex in that I don’t seem to be notified about
my own posts - so that any threads that I reply to are essentially
The only consistent threading reference is to the original topic - i.e.
<topic/xx...@discourse.gnome.org> so at least the specific topic seems
to stay together - but even that breaks occasionally.
Does anyone seriously use Discourse exclusively by email?
