Threaded view in Outlook for emails from community

Hi, I mostly use emails to keep up to date on the communities I am interested in, and use Outlook.  The Community platform (Lithium?) doesn't seem to play nicely with Outlook in that it seems to be impossible to view emails from the Community in threaded / conversation mode.

This is what it looks like in Outlook (2016):

Is there a config change that can be made on the Community platform to enable this functionality?

Thanks

Stephen

Hi Stephen,

I have not seen this option before in Lithium, so we will need to follow up with Lithium about this and get back to you.

Hi Bill

Any feedback?

This is the desired threaded conversation behavior from back in 2016:

Hi Stephen,

I can't find any settings that could/would control this but I've asked in the Lithium community.  You can subscribe to this thread there if you want and see if someone has any suggestions: - Kim

The response:  

n Outlook, if you group by Subject line instead of by Date, you'll get that subject-level threading effect.

Still, it's not the same as native e-mail conversations because the e-mail notifications don't support the concept of one message being a "reply" to another.
