Spam reduction technique

When the campus-wide e-mail system falls over, you might as well close your client (In my case, MS Exchange via Outlook - hey, I didn't choose it).  Then forget to turn it back on until, at 16:30, your line manager asks why you haven't responded to her enquiry.  Then open your e-mail, and discover that the usual trickle of spam has been transmuted into genuine messages, almost all requiring same-day action.  Consequently, stay at work until 19:15.

It's like umbrellas.  The one day you forget to take yours out with you, it will rain.
