Threading is generally handled by the newsreader, not the server.
For threading list discussions, the In-Reply-To: header has to be
honoured (or converted to a References: header). For example, your
email contained

In-Reply-To: <38A4225A.BeroList-2.5.9@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

which refers to John's article.

Some newsreaders (e.g. tin) are also able to thread by subject instead.

If somebody is going to write something along a mail2news converter,
there is a script by Mark Hammon at
(maybe Mark has already replied to a message in this thread and I
just have not noticed).
