Let’s face it, not everyone writes a good subject line in emails.   Have you ever used gmail and wanted to change the subject line, but couldn’t figure out how?  Many people just give up and most people never would bother to change the subject line anyways.

In fact, email programs like gmail and Microsoft Outlook may prefer that you keep the email subject line unchanged so that they can group email threads together.
