Based on experiences with threads 'de-muting' and a little testing, it
is my understanding that MM muting is dependent on IMAP keywords (i.e.
"Raw Flags") and threading, which is reliant on the "In-Reply-To" and/or
"References" headers (I'm not sure if both are used...) A message is
muted if it is a thread descendant of a muted message. The muted state
of a message is stored as the $Muted keyword. When you change the muted
state of a message, its replies and their replies are changed
recursively. When a message is newly seen, its place in its thread is
determined and if it is a reply to a muted message, it gets muted.
A side-effect of this is that if you delete all members of a muted
thread, future replies in the thread are not muted. I see this is as a
feature, others might deem it a bug.
