"This morning in my e-mail list I received 3 messages with the subject "Stale Mail", each being return of message about Roots3 that I sent to you 30 and 31 January 2000. Each stated that the message had "sat unread in the mailbox beyond NetZero's 6 months limit." If you receive this, please acknowledge to me by regular e-mail with your correct e-mail address, and we can pick up the dialogue contained in the allegedly "unread", "stale" messages. I guess it is possible that your changed your e-mail address at that time."
I should have included my e-mail address, which is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
