Just so you know, this didn't in fact start a new thread. All you've
done was to change the Subject line on an existing thread.

If you hit Reply to an existing message, then you do not start a new
thread. The only way to start a new thread is to create a new message
directly, and enter such things as the E-mail address yourself.
