VERY belated reply, but are you sure it wasn't the standard login or
unaway notice?  Assuming you mean you got a _new_ memo dated five years
ago, I just don't see offhand how that can happen; among other things,
the memo timestamp is set when the memo is delivered, so unless the
server running Services had a time burp, backdated memos should be

Unless it happens again, I guess all I can suggest is to treat it as a
cosmic ray...
