I have an email-enabled discussion board on a MOSS site which is working fine except that sometimes people will be using obscure email clients that don't reply with all headers or otherwise operating in such a way that a reply to one thread appears as the start of a new one.

Is there any way to combine the two threads in this circumstance?

I am not aware of any out-of-the box solutions for merging threads, but if you are going to achieve this programatically you have a couple of useful functions in the SPUtility class: SPUtility.CreateNewDiscussion and SPUtility.CreateNewDiscussionReply

It can be tricky working with discussions programatically, but these methods helps a lot.
