This Seems Legit!

Why do I keep a yahoo address? For gems like this, sometimes.

I think it's the spelling of 'maintenance' in the FROM field that's my favorite. Either that or the signature that it's been scanned for viruses.

I like the use of the semicolon in the first paragraph. Very jaunty of them.
