I somehow accidentally deleted the original message I'm replying to,
and have manually copied it from the archive at
I've also copied the message-id into my headers, so hopefully it
will thread properly.

I've just installed the newest stable version and found the same issue,
so I looked into it.  Here is a patch that will fix the problem:

My address uses a whitelist.  If you aren't in my whitelist, you can
only send me e-mail if you send to an appropriately tagged address (it
includes +sometag between the username and @).  Finger my untagged e-mail
address for a tag guaranteed good for 24 hours if you're unsure.  If I've
sent you mail recently, you're temporarily whitelisted automatically.
