I use a non-GUI MUA (Alpine) and I find it has all the features I can 
imagine to want (some of which were "user programmed")

Alpine has threading, but I have not enabled it for e-mail (while I use it 
for Usenet newsgroups ... am I old enough ? :-)).

If I want to go back to a thread in a mailing list discussion (which I do 
not archive locally), I go to the list archive.

For personal (work) correspondence I need no threading. I archive message 
in separate folders by project/topic, and I can zoom in by subject.
