Good afternoon,

My apologies, we had several issues with our old database that caused automated emails not to be delivered. I've attached a zip file with all of the emails that we could immediately locate. The Office of the Chief Technology Officer was conducting a more in-depth search and I will followup on the status of that request. I appreciate your patience and I deeply apologize for the delay. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you require any further assistance.
