Subject lines are necessary for initial screening, but are useful mainly in retrospective. They help make the useful information jump out after the search query has given you the first 150 closest matches.

How many times have I finished writing an email only to think the initial subject line was utterly worthless, or worse, something to trigger the weakest spam filter? Oodles. ("Just wanted to say hi.")
