Adding an ID to an email message

I have been placing an ID in the subject of email that I send out so that I can route it to where I want when the user replies.  However I found out yesterday that gmail strips out my ID from the subject when replying.  Is there any place I can reliably place my ID in an email message?

Thanks

It would be good to be more specific about the "ID" in the subject.  I've used that same technique with great results and I can't imagine that a service would modify your Subject: content!  Is that really what you're saying about it?

Thanks for the confirmation of approach.  It turns out it was my mistake and the data is still in the subject but I had parsed it out in a routine I added. :(

Thanks for your help
