One Of The Best Out-Of-Office Auto Responses Ever

Jail

I guess this financial markets professional will need a sense of humour where he's at now.

The New York Times reports that Michael Kimelman was a hedge fund trader who was on the fringes on the Raj Rajaratnam insider trading scandal. 

He was sentenced in October in Manhattan federal court to 30 months in prison for his participation in a scheme in which he obtained and traded on material, nonpublic information, including information misappropriated from a law firm. And Kimelman duly reported to a US Penitentiary in Lewisburg, Pa. Monday to begin his sentence.

In the meantime, the newspaper has discovered the out-of-office auto message the trader has left on his old email address:

'(The owner of) this email address is currently at a re-education camp for the indeterminate future and (the emaill address) will not be checked. Please try back once (his) lesson has been learned. Mike'.
