Subject Lines in E-Mails

Does anyone else feel that subject lines in personal e-mails are largely unnecessary?

I think they're really an unnecessary cross over from business e-mails. I mean, when you right a personal letter (a snail mail one) to someone, do you think of a subject line to go with it? No, you just write a message to them and allow them to figure out the "subject" for themselves.

That said, from now on, with personal e-mails, I'm not going to use a subject anymore. But the dreaded "[No Subject]" just looks so spamish. I guess from now on I'll subject my e-mails "Hello and Have a Great Day" or something like that.
