Well, I just tried it and it worked. I sent an e-mail with a subject
of "Foo", then I sent a second e-mail with a subject of "Re: Foo", but
not actually a reply to the first mail - a completely separate e-mail
message. SM threaded the two together (assuming I have the mail box
configured for threading view).

I verified that the second e-mail didn't have a References header (as
expected - since I didn't create it using a Reply To action).

So ... it seems to *also* thread using the subject line.

FYI (for what it's worth).
