An interesting fact about October 2010 - Hoax mail

In this month of October, a mail is being circulated in internet which reads like this:
An interesting fact about October 2010: 
This OCT. has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays, all in 1 month. It happens once in 823 years.
Is it true? A simple and quick check in the calendar shows that it is not true.

If we only consider October, it happened in 2004 and it happens again in 2021. So, we do not have to wait for 823 years as the mail claims.

If we take any other month, it happened in Jan 2010 and next it happens in July 2011.
