You hijack an existing thread by replying to a message from this  
thread to create a new message with different subject.

Symptom: in emailers which support threading (such as Apple's Mail,  
Mozilla's Thunderbird), your new message and the various answers it  
will get will be classified within the same thread as the original  
message you replied to.

Cause: by replying to an existing message, whatever new subject you  
enter manually for the reply, this reply will keep in its hidden  
headers an In-reply-to header such as (in your case)

	In-reply-to: <44A1AC9F-179E-4FA3-8788-D3315424734B at mac.com>

Cure: always use Address Book to create a new message, or hover the  
pointer onto the headers of an existing message and when either of the  
 From or To fields turns into a blue button click on the white  
triangle on the right of this button and select "New message" in the  
contextual menu that appears.
