Description

"Extra" reports are descendants of specific "summary" report. It would make sense to add References header to extras, which would point to parent summary one.

Recipients using threading in their MUAs would then get explicit parent/child tree.

Seemed like a good idea (and The Right Way (tm)) at the time, however, now I see a drawback.

Security teams usually work in terms of IP addresses - one IP, one incident. If we add References, threading mail clients will start grouping different IPs under one thread, and possibly ticketing systems will start merge extra reports under one ticket of the Summary report - which would defeat the purpose of the extra reports.

I'm afraid it might cause more breaks than improvements.
