Description Mike Harris 2018-04-10 18:48:14 UTC
In the inbox if an email has the same subject but different sender it shows in the thread of the wrong sender.

It should be it's own separate thread not added to the thread of a different person

Same problem here:

SUMMARY
Messages from two different senders get grouped in the same thread because they have the same subject. As you can see in the attachments, those are two different people.
Those aren't messages sent to two different people who then replied. Simply, the subject of the email was the same.


STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Send two emails with the same subject
2. Receive an answer for each message sent. The received messages will have "RE: subject" as subject.

OBSERVED RESULT
They are grouped together in the same thread.

EXPECTED RESULT
They should have a different thread each.
