[Mailman-Users] Archives Not Threading Properly

I've recently setup Mailman 1.1 for a small list and have been quite 
impressed with it. However, one problem I've been having is that my 
archives aren't getting threaded properly, i.e. most of the messages 
(even if they are replies to other messages) appear at the top level, 

[My List]Message 1
[My List]Message 1
[My List]Message 1

The second and third messages both have Re: in the subject line (in 
the actual message and when I click on the message), but don't appear 
indented in the list. I suspect that the problem is that some of the 
users on my list have dumb mailers that don't use the In-Reply-To: 
header and/or strip other headers. My messages to the list are all 
properly threaded (I'm using Eudora Pro 4.2.2 on the Mac for my mail).

Any idea how I can fix this? Can pipermail be configured to base the 
threading on just the subject? I realize that this could possibly 
create problems when a subject got repeated, but the threaded 
archives might work better.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions/help.
