The fun didn't stop there though. I sent off some 750 modifications
late saturday night, and received confirmations that they'd been
processed within an hour or so of each one being sent. Contact
handles were updated, and so on.
Come Monday morning, when I log in at work, I find another 1500 emails
for the new contact - the templates had each been processed two more
times, and because the contacts had changed the new contacts were
being asked for acks. Spamtastic.

Hmm, how does it go?
