I sent an E-mail

The recipient replied

So far so good

But in the mysterious way of things electrontrickery all mixed in with the reply was an E-mail I had previously received from someone else.

How did that come about?

Go back to bed, wait half an hour, get up and start the day again.

"E-mail I had previously received from someone else"

Is that email also still there and intact as well as being mixed in with other one?

I presume you mean the text content of the email that is mixed up.

Best have a look at the copy in your 'sent' folder of the first email you sent that they replied to. I don't see how otherwise it could get mixed up in a reply sent to you. Does seem jumbled up somehow (I realise the bold formatting on here didn't work out how you intended)
