I dunno - maybe they put a rubbish subject like "Re:  " and you want 
to be able to recognise "Directions to Pub" next time you scan 
through your inbox.
I use Eudora which lets me edit received mail however I like.

Back at you. What would be the point of trying to *stop* users 
modifying mail after it has been received?
Eudora stores my email as plain text files which I could always edit 
using BBEdit or similar.
