If you have a way of adding headers to your outgoing mail, then just add
a "References" and/or "In-reply-to" header, with the header's value
being the Message-ID of the message you're replying to.

(With "References", you can actually include multiple Message-IDs, just
make sure that continuation lines in the header value begin with space
or tab.)

For example, here are the headers of a message I recently sent:

   From: Karl Fogel <kfogel_at_red-bean.com>
   To: Frank Gruman <fgatwork_at_verizon.net>
   Cc: Anna Kelbert <anya_at_coas.oregonstate.edu>, users_at_subversion.tigris.org
   Subject: Re: svn:use-local feature request?
   References: <481BA9D2.2000503_at_coas.oregonstate.edu>
   Reply-To: Karl Fogel <kfogel_at_red-bean.com>
   Date: Sun, 04 May 2008 19:01:41 -0400
   In-Reply-To: <1209933509.9147.4.camel_at_toybox.thegrumans> (Frank Gruman's
           message of "Sun, 04 May 2008 16:38:29 -0400")
   Message-ID: <87k5i9wu5m.fsf_at_red-bean.com>

If you can't set those headers, then just make the Subject line of your
message be "Re: SUBJECT_OF_ORIGINAL_MESSAGE_HERE" (but don't double the
"Re" if there already is one).
