How can I edit the Subject line of an e-

By duokon ·
I have Outlook Express Version 5.0 on my personal PC. I receive a number of emails that do not have anything entered on the subject line. I find this annoying and counter productive when I'm trying to find an e-mail file containing a particular subject when the file is not titled. How can I edit or re-title the subject line of these e-mails?

Short of bringing your entire inbox.dbx file into an editor and sifting through to find and edit your subject I would suggest the following. Hit reply, remove the senders email address, enter your own email address, and enter a subject (you might want to include the senders name or initials at the beginning of the subject) and send it to yourself.

I would use Forward instead of Reply, but the process (and the result) is the same.

...oops, clicked too soon!

The reason to use Forward instead of Reply is that when you reply to a message, all attachments are stripped; forward sends the attachments as well. Important difference!

Here's a nice organizational solution I use. You can actually build a folder tree inside of Outlook Express. Right click on a message and select "move to folder". Then in that dialogue box expand the Local Folders entry, select it, and select New Folder. I named it Saved Emails. Then under that, create a folder with a name for the subject, a folder under that with a subject name for the specific email, and move it to that. You can set it up to whatever suits your taste. Works for me. You can also bring up each email and click File/Save As and save it to a folder of your choice or making in another location such as My Documents.

When I receive an email without a subject that I want to reference later, I open the email and click in the subject area. I type what I want and do a file save. This works for me. Good Luck!
