How Douglas got e-mail virus

Michael Douglas announced his engagement on his web-site and it all went smoothly. But when he came to announce that his wife-to be, Catherine Zeta Jones, was pregnant with his child, things went slightly wrong. The Bulletin sent Michael Douglas (a frequent Bulletin reader) and Catherine Zeta Jones an E-Mail to congratulate them. But yesterday we found that a fault on his web-page meant that all the E-mails had been received and bounced on to other senders. So when Bulletin staff looked at our E-Mail yesterday, we thought it was Christmas. We had no fewer that 50 E-mails from all over the world, congratulating the happy couple. A colleague on our sister paper, Ultima Hora, received a similar number. Even though we pride ourselves on being a digital newspaper, we have now decided to send our letter of congratulations by post. We hope that Michael and Catherine receive it before the baby is born!
