I'm not familiar with how Eudora works, but adding the above tag
to the subject has no other effect on the header, so if Eudora
is finding something now, it should still find it later. Or if
you can set it to look in the subject line, it can do that.

Of course, you don't have to activate this feature, so if your
system is working well for you now, there's no need to change it!
