Seems like ZeniMax is only good at digging themselves into a a deeper grave.
First they failed to deal with their last dupe by actually acting on it, and now they also introduced a brand new one.
This one involves mail from hirelings.
While logging into the game (at the loading screen), simply press Alt+F4, or Ctrl+Alt+Del and end task.
Feel free to keep doing this for a while.
Now log in and go check your mail. You will have quite a bit of mail from your hirelings.
