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:Прочитайте этот ответ в контексте 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
Yes, it is ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL to be able to change the SUBJECT line. Otherwise it would be impossible to search for old emails efficiently, and sometimes, to find them at all.
It is also convenient to have them show up in my chosen alphabetical order, so they are all grouped together.
Still working in ver 60.9.1, so I guess I will cease updating.
