Talaq/Divorce

Assalamoalikum,

These below statements were sent by email from the husband to the wife. Please let us know if Divorce happened or not. If it did, is there any chance of Ruju?
Statement sent as below:
Also, as per Islamic laws I have to pronounce divorce in totality, three times, as under:
1.       I, ABC, in my firm state of mind and consciousness, pronounce first divorce to my wife XYZ as of today November 02, 2017. (First Talaq/Divorce).
 
2.       I, ABC, in my firm state of mind and consciousness, pronounce second divorce to my wife XYZ as of today November 02, 2017. (Second Talaq/Divorce).
 
3.       I, ABC, in my firm state of mind and consciousness, pronounce third divorce to my wife XYZ as of today November 02, 2017. (Third Talaq/Divorce).

A divorce issued through email is considered effective and valid; therefore the three divorces issued have taken effect. In the case of three divorces, there is no possibility of ruju(i.e. reconciliation). The only exception to this rule is if by chance, after the completion of her period of ‘iddah, your wife marries someone else, her marriage with that man gets consummated, then due to some reason the second husband also issues divorce to her, then she finishes her period of ‘iddah, after this whole process, she can performNikah with you (i.e. tajdeed-e-nikah and not through verbal or physical reconciliation).
