  That would avoid to create the problem if the sender uses Claws Mail.

  I think he refers after damage has been done, that is, the wrong reply
is already in the thread.

  Detaching a mail from a thread would require to modify it or keep an
external database of detached messages per folder. The first is never
done by Claws Mail, and the second it's not done so far, so patches
welcome ;)
