I have noticed that when I (have to) use outlook for any period there are
two main effects:
1) I long for a real mail client.
2) I start to forget that real mail clients thread properly.

This isn't a comment about any particular person but if you use outlook a
lot you get used to a flat list of emails. MS half-baked attempt at
threading 'View'->'By Conversation' doesn't do the job at all well and I
don't use it, but it does (allegedly) group mails in the same thread
together. It doesn't show the relationship - i.e. no tree structure, but it
may help sometimes.
And no, I can't change MUA, I would if I could but I can't.
