Edit subject line of received email in Thunderbird 3.0

Edit subject line of received email in Thunderbird 3.0

Is there a way to edit the subject line of emails you've received in Thunderbird? I use email a lot for work and it would be a lot easier if I could change subjects to make things easier to find later.

Move the message to Drafts, edit Subject, move message back.

"TB Header Tools Extension (add-on)

this thunderbird add-on lets you change any header or the email's source. I use it with TB 3.1.9 to add subjects to those awful blank-subject emails ...

For a description/discussion of this add-on see:

Note: if you are using TB 3.1.x, make sure you get the patched version. The unpatched add-on will install, but won't show the edit dialog."
