Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be happy to assist you.

I am sorry to hear you lost your mail.

Can you please confirm for me who your email provider is, is it yahoo, hotmail, aol, gmail or someone else?

Also are you using an email program like outlook or windows mail OR are you checking your email with a web browser such as internet explorer?

Please let me know so I can further assist.
Thank you,
Chris

Hi Chris


for just as strange a reason the email is now working, I will let you know if I have any further problems

Well that is good, keep an eye on it. This may have just been a mistake or some temporary issue.

I am aware of the message you described from the Dentist, it is a pretty common scam. Getting this email does not mean you were hacked it means your Dentist was so you should be OK.

If you need further help please do not hesitate to reply back and let me know.

Thank You
-Chris
