When you're editing your followup, simply locate the Subject line, by typing:

This will position your cursor at the beginning of that line. Then, go to
the first word of the subject itself, by typing

After that, enter your new subject by typing the letter "i" followed by
whatever you want the new text to be, and then " [Was: ". When you've
done this, hit the ESCAPE key. Since brackets need to be closed, type "]A",
again followed by the ESCAPE key.
