threaded conversation

A sequence of email or group discussion messages between parties that pertains to the same subject. See threaded email.

threaded email

An email program that consolidates messages with the same subject line so they appear together as a continuous "thread" or "chain." Both email client programs and Web-based email offer threaded email. As long as users reply to the same message, the on-going conversation is maintained as a group. Email programs may offer both threaded and unthreaded options.

Non-Threaded Mail Keeps Duplicating
If email is not threaded, each new reply in a conversation appears in the inbox as a new message. The separate messages make it more cumbersome to review a subject from beginning to end at a later date. See message thread and thread.
