I just received yet another mis-directed e-mail from someone who didn't pay attention when he started entering an address in his e-mail client and selected the wrong one. (Such is the problem of having a common first name...)

This one thanked me for his recent raise. I promptly replied that I had no idea what I was thinking at the time and have since decided to retract the raise. :)

i just got one of those today as well.
one of the last names in the cc: list was similar to mine - actually one letter in the middle removed from mine.

not the first time this company made this type of error and in previous cases i have seen sensitive information.

That reminds me of the letter, received by Bill Wyman the rock journalist, that was written by Mick Jagger, intended for Bill Wyman the bass guitarist, responding to Keith Richards comments in his autobiography.

That may explain one meail I got a cc of recently. It was obviously not meant for me and my email address is in sender's address book.

My mail client only offer auto-fill options if you press tab, which seems to make mistakes a lot less likely.
