    I wrote an email to the Alternative Medicine Research Institute ( for some info, but I received a reply from Herriot-Watt. Why?

    I think I can say with certainty that there is no connection between the Financial Times division of Pearson (or Heriot-Watt University) and a Danish alternative medicine institute (whose website is 'under construction').

    This is truly a baffling matter.

    I went to this alternative medicine website, sent an e-mail via the link, and received a reply from them.

    I can only imagine that there was some glitch in your e-mail program, or the address was mistyped, or the link wasn't working correctly.

    Of note, on the Heriot-Watt student website this morning, there was a report on e-mail from a University staffer.

    Due to problems with Internet routers in the UK and with an intra-University mail system in the UK, e-mail all over the UK and elsewhere in Europe, particularly to or from educational institutions, is being misrouted, misdelivered or vanishing into the ether.

    This may explain your earlier e-mail problem.
