Is there any way to have Thunderbird highlight related email messages (that is, belonging to the same conversation) just like Apple Mail does?

Below is an example screenshot of an Apple mailbox: one message (September 13) is selected and one related message (May 23) is automatically highlighted

I wish Thunderbird did this too. Great feature! –  AK. Apr 18 '12 at 18:11

Just found a link for adding a 'Conversation View' to Thunderbird: MozillaZine - Message Grouping. The most relevant link on that page is Conversation View add-on ?(for gmail).

Hope this helps.

Conversation view groups the messages. I don't want the grouping, I want the highlighting. I've included a sample inbox image to my question to clarify –  Rabarberski Jan 12 '12 at 9:44
My bad, I would check Thunderbird add-ons, I'm guessing you've done that though. –  mcint Jan 16 '12 at 12:24
Do any of these approximate what you want. addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/search/… –  mcint Jan 16 '12 at 12:29
