The conversation view in Outlook 2003 is handy but, unfortunately, it groups all messages with an empty subject (or just RE: and/or FWD: prefixes) into the same conversation.

I tried modifying the subject header of received messages (yes, it's an editable field) but they still group with the no-subject conversation.

Any suggestions?

You explain the issue but what do you exactly need? Thanks. – r0ca Oct 25 '11 at 20:57
I have several different email threads that were sent with an empty subject. Outlook groups them into one "conversation". I want to split them into several such that each "conversation" will only contain related email messages (replies and forwards). – Alex O Oct 26 '11 at 3:08
I think that if you sort all of your emails by Subject (Which are blank) and then right click on the Subject bar at the top, select Group by box... I see all my email with no subject but with the sender I had the email conversations. Hope that help, let me know. – r0ca Oct 31 '11 at 14:45
