I'm not sure whether I understand you correctly: are you asking how to
turn on threading in Thunderbird? (That would be in the menu View ->
Sort by -> Threaded.) But that's Thunderbird's doing, Dovecot isn't
really involved afaik, I assume Thunderbird will look at the message-id
and in-reply-to headers of the mails.
Or are you asking about the Gmail feature of not using subfolders but
keep everything in the same place and only use search to find your
stuff? (Well, I haven't used Gmail much, one of the reason being that
when I tried it I thought how would you keep mailing lists separated
sanely? (Without having to create separate custom queries for each of
them or so.))
