This message is being sent to you automatically because you sent email to
Philip Hazel, and you are not somebody with whom I have previously
I have had to install some defences against unsolicited mail, because it got to
the point where 90% of what I was receiving was junk. For example, one morning
recently I arrived at work to find I had only 5 real messages out of 66.
(If you are a previous correspondent, then my attempts to whitelist you have
clearly failed; this might have happened if you have mailed from a different
address, or if the envelope sender of your messages is different to the From:
lines. My apologies.)
If you are trying to send me unsolicited advertising of any kind, or requests
for "urgent assistance", please go away. Even if you manage to get a message
through to me, I will not read it, or respond to it in any way.
If you are trying to send me a genuine message, please re-send the message with
the following code included in the Subject line:
Once I have established that you are a genuine correspondent, your address will
be added to my whitelist, and you will not have to go through this procedure
again. The code above is valid for a few days.
I am sorry that I have to make you do this in order to contact me. I left my
mailbox open to all as long as I could, but the scum of the Internet have now
got so numerous that the amount of rubbish has become too overwhelming without
some automatic filtering.
