Strangely, even when that happened re-parenting worked.

Unfortunately I didn't keep track exactly with which

Testing with your new version, it seems to be that
"only case" mentioned above. Strangely: that
particular message was sent through Claws Mail, yet
for some reason the script says it has no Message-Id.
Any idea how to fix the file so that I can re-parent it

Thank you so much!
BTW I see that after the action completes, the last
message in the thread remains selected. That is: after
having selected A-D and run the action, only D
+- D [selected]
I wonder: is it possible instead to have all messages
except the first one to remain selected? Like this:
+- B [selected]
+- C [selected]
+- D [selected]
Then it will be very easy and fast to create the
by simply re-running the action without the need to
select many messages each and every time. With a
shortcut key it will really fly.
Another thing: once I made a mistake and threaded
messages which should not be threaded. I had to go and
manually delete In-Reply-To and references to undo
that. Perhaps (if you have the time and desire) you can
make a script which also unparents messages which will
make the combination of the two an excellent
