    can this be said: Please compose a new email for every new date and not use the same

    can this be said:

    Please compose a new email for every new date and not use the same thread because it becomes clustered and the subject title remains the same so...

    Does it make sense?

    It doesn't make sense to me. The whole thing I mean, not just "every new date".

    Could you change it so that it makes sense?

    I don't know what you're trying to say so it's impossible to make it make sense. Give us the information you're trying to impart in shorter, clearer sentences, using different words.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You talked about e-mail and separate dates, then jumped to thread and subject title. The person reading your message has no idea how the different items are related. There is no logic, one item does not follow from another

    What becomes cluttered(not clustered)? Who wrote the message, to whom and for what purpose?

    I'm trying to ask my friend to compose a new email with a different subject title because she keeps replying with the same email that I sent her a week ago and it's still has the same subject title.

    Please reply your e-mails for a new date on a fresh sheet with a new subject title.
    Do not use write on the same sheet with the same subject title with all the previous mails duplicated.
    This will make it easier for me to sort out and retrieve mails according to date.

    Batman, you can say "When you reply to my e-mail, please start a new e-mail with a different title in the subject line."

    Ted, "Please reply your e-mails" is incorrect. Also, I have never heard a new e-mail referred to as a "fresh sheet". That sounds like paper.

    In addition, "Do not use write on the same sheet" is incorrect.

    Mike, why are the sentences incorrect?
    I used 'sheet' which is understood to be an 'electronic sheet' on the computer screen.
