You could try the 'References:' header, which is rarely used, and even
then primarily by Usenet postings, but I believe it passes through so
it's worth a try. I don't have time to try this out myself, but if
anyone has a go...

Subject: embed issue id into email subject
Hi Tibor -
We have the exact same issue with our installation of Eventum. For now,
we have disabled the Email integration as it relates to emailing Eventum
and getting it to track issue updates via email.
However, we had the same thought, to embed the issue ID in the subject
line, which should work fine with Exchange.
I'll be curious to find out any info that relates to this also, e.g.
which PHP programs need adjustment and such. It should be a fairly
simple task to change where the scripts look for the issue number,
If we get to this sooner than you do (or the maintainers do), I'll post
whatever methods and results we came up with.
