I looked into this a bit more, it looks like Dennis's version of  
Outlook does not include In-Reply-To and References headers in his  
emails, but has some other form of reference tracking. I don't know  
if Outlook has a compatibility mode, or if newer versions support In- 
Reply-To, but a web search should have some info on that.

I'd recommend Thunderbird anyway though.
