You mean, like, Gmail via the browser? There are ways to use a normal
specialized mail program with Gmail, you know:
In any case, that doesn't explain the absence of the threading headers
from your messages. I use Gmail myself for "sacrificial" purposes
(when I don't mind my address potentially exposed to spammers) and it
seems to thread just fine; indeed, anything else would surprise given
Google's relatively high attention to standard adherence. Here is a
bit of the headers from my recent message:

Also, I was wrong in thinking _all_ your posts were broken; the one I'm
replying to here seems to be just fine. Hmm. Maybe you sometimes do
something else than "Reply" or "Reply To All"? I can see that if you
hover the mouse on the name of the sender it pops up a window with an
option to send. Don't use that way when you want to continue an ongoing
discussion, please. Always use the Reply To All feature in such cases.
That's how Gmail (or any other client) knows to insert the magic
