It may look the same to you, but most email agents can 'thread' the
messages, and they do not use the subject line precisely because it is so

Starting a new message, if you are not replying to an existing message
which continues the thread, will start a new thread, making the whole group
of messages discussing your given subject, very easy to follow because the
thread then will start with the original poster's (your) question.
