  • Hi Srisql,

    Do you want to change the subject line? How did you change the subject name? 

    You can try to send a test mail and manual change the subject line for the email in the subject box. Or you can test email from SQL Server to execute the statement below likes:
    declare @body1 varchar(100)
    set @body1 = 'Server :'+@@servername+ ' My First Database Email '
    EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail @recipients=’’,
        @subject = 'My Mail Test',----change the subject line here
        @body = @body1,
        @body_format = 'HTML' ;

    For more information, please refer to Troubleshooting Database Mail: Sending Test E-Mail

    If you changed success please verify subject line message using  sysmail_allitems. For  more information, please refer to this article.
