+### Translations for Action Mailer E-Mail Subjects
+
+If you don't pass a subject to the `mail` method, Action Mailer will try to find
+it in your translations. The performed lookup will use the pattern
+`<mailer_scope>.<action_name>.subject` to construct the key.
+
+```ruby
+# user_mailer.rb
+class UserMailer < ActionMailer::Base
+ def welcome(user)
+ #...
+ end
+end
+```
+
+```yaml
+en:
+ user_mailer:
+ welcome:
+ subject: "Welcome to Rails Guides!"
+```
