Feature Request - Shorter Subject

I realize I could customize the script (which I would have to re-do with each update/upgrade)... but I do think this would help.

I have a handful of servers and overnight the script runs and emails success/failures.

I added a custom subject (XSI ServerName REPORT) in the cron lines...

On success, the full subject is:
✔ XSIBACKUP no errors detected in backup job | XSI XVM01 REPORT

The checkbox is great, it tells me no troubles... but Outlook's layout, cuts the subject off at "✔ XSIBACKUP no errors detected in..."

This means I can't tell which server was backed up at a quick glance in the morning....

It would be nice if it was formatted similar to this:

XSIBACKUP - SERVERNAME - ✔ OK - no errors detected in backup job

This would allow to sort/filter by title, thus the server, so I can see a history of a specific server... easily see the server and status... Similar on an ERROR.
