When you’re working on various projects, tracking emails in Microsoft Outlook or Thunderbird, various subjects can be daunting. I think everyone’s aware that email has some obvious limitations on tracking, but what’s interesting is that there’s not been any advancements with being able to follow email threads were conversations with email in a long time.
Unfortunately, when you send an email the only thing that you can track an email by is the subject line. And unfortunately, if someone changes the subject line of the email somewhere down the road, your email program will lose the ability to track down the entire email conversation.
I haven’t seen any applications that focus on reconstructing or tracking email conversations. It only seems to work if the subject line remains the same across the whole conversation. But there’s another way, a simple/easy way to track your email conversations even if the subject line changes. The solution is AutoHotKey.
