As long as the first message is in your Sent folder, have you tried
Message->Re-edit?  This will open the sent message and you can make all
the changes you wish...

Re-edit will have the same Subject (unless you change it).  There's a way
to remove references; but not add them (that I know of) like this.

Unless I still misunderstand, check out Re-edit...

That's yet another way...  :)  I use tons of folders and set their
Properties to do most of what you want -- in addition to threading,
keeping similar stuff in their own folders works well for me...  

There are just so many ways to solve problems in CM...  :)  Including
"execute" in Filters, Python, etc...
