sendmail is a MTA (mail transfer agent), it does not knwo about the Subject: line.
What you want to do is part of your MUA (mail user agent), usually.

I think you've got only one weird and ugly choice - use milter to analyze your message body and fix it accordingly.

I think you are talking the sendmail command in shell not the sendmail MTA . Am I right ? If yes, don't use the -s option so therefore you can ignore the subject.
