Hi Mark... usually flushing a normal toilet in zero-gravity is not a good idea, but this time
may be different..
Answer to that email and see what happens. That will give you the chance to observe how the
spammer/hacker behaves.... 
It is not easy to block emails just becasue they contating a  "how are you?"  sentence.
But in case any user replays, it may beeasier to detect the second spammer email...  far
from perfect but a good FP/FN balance.
