Just use MailTags
Authored by: strike3 on Apr 04, '06 06:44:08PM

I just set the MailTags note (though you could use the keyword function also) to whatever the subject line should have been.

Then you need only search the "entire message" in Mail and your messages will show up, without altering the original mail. Since that's my default search setting in Mail, I need only type the subject line in the search box and Spotlight tracks down the message almost instantaneously.

I too have fought AppleScript for hours trying to modify the subject line of a message and initially I thought MailTags was just a less than perfect substitute -- but now I actually prefer MailTags because I know for sure my emails are exactly as they were sent (this is important for those of us who have forgetful people emailing us and then changing their tune later on -- it's nice to know for certain what they sent!)
