    Just had an email from BT which is worded exactly the same. You would think they would show a little more imagination.

    However, people are taken in by these things. Email, speaking generically, needs to be a lot cleverer at weeding these things out. My spam filter stops some of them but still too many get through.

    Yes - I agree - it's essential not to underestimate the importance of being earnest...
