What's curious about this email is that although the return email address is an online account, it was sent from an email account at the University of Hertfordshire. We're checking into who the account belongs to; in the meantime, it goes without saying that we won't be quitting the day job just yet.

    i love how they use names like 'Brown J. Williams' to give it that colloquial touch. But J. Williams Brown minus the typos, on this occasion, would have been more convincing.

What do you think?
