Hi Bob,

Maybe we should also take into account what will happen when the user 
missed to add the subject term or body:

Missing "REQUIREMENTS" term in the subject line:

The mail won't be directed to us and is maybe going somewhere else or 
in worst case it is lost. IMHO this is not acceptable.

Missing body text:

The mail is coming to us but without information. IMHO not that bad 
because we have the senders mail address and can contact him to ask him 
to resend his mail.

Therefore I also would go the way with point 1.

Best regards
