Waiting to received the details of your email.
Well, I'm surely sorry you're having "congeston". Is that anything like hives? As least your "congeston" seems to be balanced by "longin", always a pleasant thing. As for my "informations", I am actually "waiting to received" them myself.
Perhaps you can help.

At the risk of appearing picky, the word "congestion" was spelled correctly in the quoted email, contrary to the spelling in your response. On the other hand, "registration" was misspelled as well as "login", in addition to the other cited issues with syntax and grammar.
