Custom Subject in Email to Kindle

Is there a relatively simple way to add a subject line to the "email to" system?

My situation is I have over a hundred scanned pdfs with mixed images and text that Calibre can't convert to MOBI because there is not actual text data in the files. If I use Amazon's e-mail to kindle functionality I can add "convert" to the subject line and Amazon's system is able to convert the files successfully. All the files are in my library and I've done a lot of metadata editing, so I'd like to be able to e-mail them all through Calibre and have them converted, but I need "convert" in the subject line.

I can do a little bit of hacking in python if that kind of editing is needed, but I was wondering if there was some easier solutions.

Thanks!
