A lot of people consider the "subject" as being the "thread". It's
advisable to explain that emails include data, the "header". Usually
most of the header is hidden by email programs. "Message-ID",
"References" and "In-Reply-To" provide the thread related header data.
Some people use the "thread" to sort emails. Usually email programs
allow to fall back to sort by subject, if threads are broken, but this
doesn't always work as wanted.
