Even indecent mail programs can do this - in OE, for instance, try
"View->Current view->Group messages by conversation", or ALT + V V G if
you like the shortcut. Use it along with a simple message rule to move all
rockbox stuff to a particular folder, and you'll have a nice threaded
archive, e.g.,
Apply this rule after the message arrives

Where the message body contains 'rockbox' or 'archos'

or Where the To line contains 'rockbox'

Move it to the Rockbox folder

and Stop processing more rules
