Subject Manager by TrVTrV

Rated 5 out of 5 stars 13 reviews

Manages subject of composed emails.
Collector's Note One of the major frustrating issues in receiving emails is the subject line that often is merely re: reply, some meaningless text or - worse - empty subject lines. Quite often subject lines are generic or standard in nature, when describing the context of an email. The Subject Manager add-on allows you to pre-define "standard" subject lines that you most often use, and which can easily be selected when required. The Subject Manager add-on and the Reject Button add-on, can be a useful combination for one's efforts to root out poorly constructed emails that wastes time and effort.
