It’s just plain annoying when someone types a stupid subject to an email message or worse still who doesn’t include one at all!

When you think about it, finding emails in an inbox is difficult enough without having to work around silly subject lines – at least in Outlook 2003 and earlier versions.

Luckily there is a solution when someone messes with your neatly organized inbox, and it’s a fix you can apply yourself. Simply open the Outlook email message and type over the current subject line – it looks like you can’t do this but it works just fine.

Then, when you close the message, you’ll be asked if you want to save the changes so select Yes and you’re done – sensible subject lines for all your messages.
