Please bear in mind though that if you do this, and leave the tags in
the Subject line when you reply you can cause people who filter
MailScanner messages to a folder using other methods to have grief
following threads (depending on what software they use).

(Same applies to foreign language alternatives to Re:, and we won't go
in to leaving {Spam} and {Virus} tags in subjects...)
