The University's Information Technology Security Policy reminds you that while e-mail can be a very effective and efficient means of communication, it is not generally a secure method of communication. As a result, not all information is appropriate for inclusion in an e-mail.

Student employees of the University are reminded that sensitive information –- such as Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, health information –- should never be included in e-mail. By remembering that e-mail is the functional equivalent of a postcard sent by regular mail and never including information in an e-mail that you would not want to see in the local or national news media, you can avoid potential embarrassment and violating the University’s obligation to comply with federal law.

So, he moves across the country and transforms himself into a selfish, womanizing and successful music executive. But, 10 years later, circumstances bring him back to his home town and fate reconnects him with the "just friends" girl of his dreams.
