It would be nice if MailNews provided a fast way (via menu or hotkeys) to jump along a reply chain: for a message that has Replied status, jump to a reply and vise versa.
What exactly do you want: A. to jump from a message in Inbox to its reply in Sent folder; or B. to jump from a message in Inbox to another one in Inbox having the same subject? B is possible using View->Sort by->Threaded.
A. Jump from Inbox to Sent and vice versa along a reply chain.

Disagree. I don't ask for combined thread view but for jumping ability. Reopenning...

Well, in order to have exactly what you ask, you need: A. to implement the concept of threads across folders; B. to have shortcuts to navigate a thread without viewing messages grouped by thread; A is the harder part and it's not trivial to implement; this is covered by bug 229568; what UI this feature will have will be decided only after A is solved, and this can also be discussed in bug 229568. So I think at least a dependency on bug 229568 is necessary.
