valid question.

Well, maybe Evo could use this Micros~1 specific header, just for the
convenience of its users. But it should never ever use this header when
sending mails, unless it actually gets an RFC.

I agree with this. Then there's another question that begs asking. I'm
not sure how often RFCs are updated etc, but if innovation/features such
as this gmail conversations isn't in the RFC, and it's something new,
and only gmail uses it, it would mean they're not following the RFC/open
standards and thus unacceptable? How then can innovation occur? 

I've been asked, if everyone follows open standards, which takes ages to
finalise, how is innovation gonna survive/surface? 

Besides, this got *nothing* to do with the Windows port of Evolution.
Linux users do correspond with Windows users. And there are Windows only
MUAs out there, that don't give a fuck about Outlook specific headers...

Yeah.. I know.. but I was thinking that since it's alry gonna be on
windows, and it supports Exchange(even under Linux) then possibility
that the team might support Thread-Index as well. (else, I think
existing/new (Outlook) users might not think of switching to Evo.

ps: I just found out Evo supports alternative threading to fall back to
subject threading. So.. it's still cool.
