is a Preference within your email client to sort by Subject?

I'll admit I'm guilty of posting a new Topic by clicking Reply and changing
the Subject, but this seems to me to be far easier as you normally want to
quote a portion of a post but acknowledge that it is a tangent topic. So as
it works perfectly for me, unless there is an avalanche of other's who are
suffering the same as you, I'm not sure I'll remember to compose a brand
new message just to help your email client.
