Can anyone tell me why it is happening (fwd)

  Have a little compassion.  I went to Jennine's company's website and they
don't appear to be one of the mega-corps that are moving jobs to Asia to
save a buck.  They look like a small specialty food company who's customers
aren't buying anymore, because their jobs are getting exported to Asia.
When the town's biggest factory closes, the local grocery store lays off
people, too.  (Oh! Boy! I got that tee-shirt.)

personally, i have little compassion for employers who lay people off, so
i'm not gonna lose any sleep if they can't decrypt their mail while a former
employee scrambles to keep food on the table, and a roof over their head.

i'm sure you'll figure it out.... just start reading the handbooks and FAQs,
on company time.
