This guy reads an email

Hremails (a contraction of "Homestar Runner Emails") are installments of an email show by Homestar Runner, similar in nature to Strong Bad Email (with which it frequently overlaps). Homestar was first seen checking emails on the Happy 8600, a laptop modeled after the XO-1 computer for the One Laptop Per Child Program. The first time a hremail was officially seen was in the 200th Strong Bad Email, email thunder. Hremail 49 (which receives a passing mention by Homestar in the Sbemail) and Hremail 24 were also released as secret pages. In email thunder, Strong Bad interrupted a hremail, vowing to ruin the program after learning of its existence. Strong Bad does this by sending a fake email to Homestar, asking for a tour of his "not-in-front-of-your-computer" (AKA The Field). After Homestar leaves, Strong Bad uses a super-sized bottle of Mountain Dew to ruin Homestar's Happy 8600, similar to Homestar pouring Mountain Dew on the Compy 386 in the email anything.

Hremails 49 and 24 were included in strongbad_email.exe Disc Six as Easter Eggs in the DVD version of email thunder.

On January 26, 2009, Hremail 62 was made in full and was followed by Hremail 2000 the following week. The present hremail format is similar to a television program and takes place in The Hremail Room. Homestar Runner now reads out the email from a sheet of paper and the Happy 8600 has been replaced with a talking microfiche reader called the Arturo 9000. Hremails, strangely, are only listed in the New Stuff menu.

Before December 2008, sending an email to Homestar's address - DJmankiewicz@homestarrunner.com - prompted the following auto-reply:

From: DJmankiewicz@homestarrunner.com
Subject: My Inbox Runneth Ova!

Oh, hello everyone! For some unknown reason I'm getting this big cavalcanche of emails all of the sudden. They're filling up the basement and I'm running out of paper towels!

Just sit tight and hremails will be back to normal before you know it.

And thanks again to everyone who participated in Bacon Pretend Week! Ron Staple you are a GENIUS!

Okay bye,
Homestar Runner

When an email is answered by Homestar Runner, the person who wrote it may receive the following message:
