s/n't now//.

Send a message to <support@pipex.net> containing

    Message-ID: <foo@bar.com>

Now send another message containing

    References: My message <foo@bar.com> sent recently

When I read the second message with my WWW browser, the ID in the
`References:' field is a link to the first message.
