Strangely enough, I use gmail, and not only do my postings appear in
the threads, but I have NEVER had trouble creating new threads.

As suggested earlier in this thread, I do suspect it's a problem with
the Outlook configuration -- it's been years since I've used Windows
but I spend a lot of time and mental energy trying to help people
suffering from it. (Windows as well as Outlook) The cure is easy --
Thunderbird works OK in Windows (not perfect but to me it seems more
solid than Outlook) and of course in linux, Evolution looks a lot like
Outlook and presumably works OK on this list.
