Kind regards

I spoke with the developers and we should be able to change this behavior in one of the next versions. I'll post here when I know more information.

Thanks a lot. May me there are other characters than <>, which a customer could not use for his subject.

For now we will only add the ability to use <> but if other characters become a problem we can look into those as well.
