I have a service sending out automated emails via Amazon SES with some questions to answer when people sign up, and currently all replies are being grouped into a single conversation in Google Inbox. Is there some way I can tell Google that these are separate conversations?

    I'm not sure about Google Inbox, but with Gmail and most other email clients that group emails into conversations, varying the subject usually breaks the conversation. – MrWhite Feb 13 '16 at 19:27
  • Hmm, adding their name to the subject might be enough. That's a good point, thanks. – Carl Vitullo Feb 13 '16 at 19:34

    Did you mean this post for webapps.stackexchange.com? – barrycarter Feb 13 '16 at 19:59

    I looked at that, but the solution to this would involve changing my automated emailer rather than changing settings in Inbox. I felt it fit here better. – Carl Vitullo Feb 13 '16 at 20:02
  • Are these emails related to your website? If not, this is not the appropriate place to ask. serverfault.com might be more appropriate. – Stephen Ostermiller Feb 13 '16 at 21:02

I will give you as an answer the obvious one that applies for all e-mails from/to same sender/receiver that you do not want to be displayed as a thread (conversation) and you want each one of them to be displayed individually (in case you have not already set it up):

Open Gmail page > Click at the Gear icon > Settings > Conversation View > Set it to "Off"

I just got an programmatically answer:

I guess this link will help you.

Each eMail has in its header an id. So answers always belong to an id which can be found in eMails header.

So you have to send mails with different ids in their headers.
