Thanks for the reply Zoli. This does solve my problem. It would be nice if this was in the FAQ. I'll try to remember to submit a change request next time I'm on github (not too soon).
BTW. Sorry for the late reply and possility this post creates a new thread. I spent days unsuccessfully searching for a Linux GUI imap email client that can properly reply to a message contained in a digest preserving message id. Unfortunately I found none so I'm simply copy/pasting the subject line to respond.
