Google Mail: Edit Subject of a Conversation Thread
In Google Mail, you can change the subject of a mail conversation that has already been started. When you do this and send the email, the recipients will receive the email in their inbox as a new conversation.
If you simply want each email you receive (including those with the same subject line) to appear as a new conversation thread, see the Google Mail: Turn Off Conversation View computer help page.
