She fainted when she read the e-mail.

This is based on a joke that is probably as old as e-mail itself. Early $poylers - please, well, e-mail =)

Feel free to have a look at "She fainted II" as well!

Was the email directed at her specifically? Or was it a mass mail? Did she know the sender?

Pure text email? Or any pictures or such?

Did she faint because she was frightened? Shocked?

Did the sender know her? Did she think she knew the sender? Was the e-mail mistakenly sent to her? Did the contents of the e-mail concern her? Did she know the person talked about in the e-mail, or the person to whom the e-mail was addressed?

Was she shocked by the content of the mail? Or the fact that she had received it? Would anyone have been as shocked as her? Or was there something about her that made her reaction especially strong? Did she misunderstand something about the mail?

Is it relevant that she is a woman? Is her age relevant? Profession? Nationality?

Did she believe the letter came from someone deceased? Some kind of supernatural being? God or one of his celestial support staff?

You said the content was relevant, so I'm assuming it wasn't the mere shock of receiving a missive from someone beyond the grave that made her faint.

Did it say something in the vein of 'Looking forward to seeing you soon' or 'Your appointment is in 7 days' or something in a similar vein?

You said it's relevant she's a woman. Did the subject of the e-mail concern conception or fertility, and she took it as a sign that she would be the next Mary of Nazareth?

I remember this one, I think... was it something like "Very hot down here, looking forward to seeing you soon"? And it was actually sent by a friend who had gone to Florida or something, not her late husband?

********SPOILER********

A couple decides to go to Florida to escape an especially cold winter. Due to their job schedules, the aren't able to fly there together, so the husband leaves a day earlier than his wife. When he arrives at their hotel, he decides to write an e-mail to his wife. However, he accidentally forgets one letter.

Meanwhile, a widow returns from her recently deceased husband's funeral and decides to check her e-mail for messages of condolence. After reading the first message, she screams and faints. Her daughter rushes into the room and sees the following message on the computer screen.

To: My loving wife
Subject: I've arrived

I know you're surprised to hear from me. The have computers here and I just want you to know I've arrived safely. Everything is prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to see you here!

P.S.: It's sure hot down here!
