Resembles your truncated language.

Truncation is no good -- not in what you are about, how you address us, and certainly not in what you do about him.

May I add, a comma after, "This", and, after, "and". Makes for a tidy comment.

I rarely see senior managers with such a great grasp of 'l33t sp3@k'! Most of them stick to those old boring complete sentences and insist on 'correct' spelling. It's refreshing to see someone in your position who's in touch with cutting edge communications trends, especially one who is so obviously a lying sack.

go and talk to them - if he IS your subordinate then you have a case for them to investigate.

For example - If required, due to the way I setup the mail system up, can recall (given proper auth) any sent / recieved message dating back 2 years.
