Stella is right. The email address iseems a proper school, but don't know if
the portals can handle it. I wonder what the IT manager is doing, tearing
hair out probably. However, if they used Hotmail or whatnot, then they would
not appear genuine. Good thought, bad idea!

A school in Nova Scotia, Canada, tried this stunt about two years
ago and was shut down by the school's ISP after 24 hours because the
system couldn't handle the flood of mail.
