Many MUAs will thread messages from mailing lists, including for
example, Apple's Mail.app (that I'm using right now) and the list
archive software (Hypermail). Well, the latter isn't really an MUA,
but still (and it also does not fold threads, just indent into a tree.
In fact, if you use an MUA that doesn't thread, I think it's fair to
say your software is defective (and therefore likely made by MS).
