There is a list that is a major means of communication for academic library professionals called liblicense ( http://www.library.yale.edu/~llicense/ListArchives/ ).

Replies to this list are not threading in Thunderbird 3.3a2. They are correctly threading in gmail.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Subscribe to liblicense
2. Wait for people to send replies to messages
3. Notice they are not threading correctly

Can you post the source from one of these messages (a reply, not one of the root messages)? Chances are it's got a bad References header or something like that.

No reference headers indeed. 

According to <https://wiki.mozilla.org/MailNews:Message_Threading#Preferences_Controlling_Threading> changing mail.strict_threading  should fix your issue with this mailing list.

Reporter, 

do you still see this problem when using a current version of thunderbird? 

And if you do not, please close bug report by changing resolution to worksforme

Sorry, haven't been using TBird lately, so I can't confirm either way. Closing.
