I'm really tired. You won't ever believe how amounts of
spam I have to send daily... Imagine: you remember how
much spam and viruses or notifications you got lately...?
Be sure they simply keep coming. Really. They won't stop.

NOW THEY HAVE YOUR NEW EMAIL ADDRESS.

auto-responders? Please, turn me off.
