It is not the 'list' where the messages are threaded per se.
'References:' and/or 'In-Reply-To:' headers contained in a message
posses the information that allows for threading of messages by a
mail reader, mutt in my case.
Ergo, just a change in the 'To:' header will not make any
difference, unless you also /remove/ the 'References:' and
That assumes that you want to create a new & separate thread by
replying to another message, which is more time consuming than
starting a new thread from scratch, no?
