Is there any way to change the "subject" line on a series of emails forwarded by a correspondent to reflect the order in which they were originally created?
The threads being sent to me all have similar "subjects" and have been accumulated over a relatively long period of time. When they are forwarded to me, they all reflect the date of most recent transmission. If I need to put them in relative order, I can look at some date of prior "forward" or "reply", but I don't know how to mark the sequence on the individual emails. It would be very helpful if I could "rename" individual items to reflect their order and/or usefulness for my purposes.
Not sure if this would be sufficient for your purposes, but you can edit the subject of received messages with either of these add-ons:Read this answer in context 2

Neither of these add-ons now work with Thunderbird 68, unfortunately.
I can edit the Subject by moving the email to the Drafts folder, making the edit and moving it back the Ínbox' but then the correct date order is lost.
I hope Thunderbird (and/or the add-on dev's) remedy this
