You might have known this for long time already, but I've just discovered this awkward feature of Yahoo Mail:
When a user of Yahoo Mail responds to a message using the web interface, there are no headers that reference the original message (such as "References:" "In-Reply-To:"), so that such a reply is not (and cannot be) linked into a conversation thread.

I understand you cannot do much about it, so, it is "FYI", in case someone complains about conversation not properly linked together.

Same with Verizon web mail.

Same with (which also uses two "blockquote" blocks, one for the quoting header and one for the actual quoted text).

Standards? Who needs them!
