Gotta love the IT Helpdesk here...

My boss was having a bit of a spam problem, getting all types of NWS e-mails for Viagra, Cialis, etc., so he calls the helpdesk. They tell him they're going to add a processing rule to his e-mail so that all e-mails containing any of the common "four letter" words would be automatically sent to his deleted folder. Half the day goes by and he hasn't received any e-mails whatsoever, getting phone calls from people wondering why he hasn't responded, as well as showing up late for a meeting that had been rescheduled to an earlier time slot. Come to find out, one of those redirected "four letter" words was "sex", and, get this, his last name is Sexton! Yep, we have some bright young professionals working in our IT department.

Re: Gotta love the IT Helpdesk here...

So what was the problem?

Maybe your boss should just change his damned name.
