    E-mail Irritations

    Tuesday, July 20, 2004

    E-mails! Doesn't anyone use paper anymore? I have to admit, I am addicted to e-mails, but sometimes they are a problem. For example, don't you hate it when people press the "reply all" button instead of just "reply" when answering an e-mail? Suddenly, everyone in the company is getting a message that probably was only meant for one person. If the e-mail isn't relevant to you, it can be pretty annoying. And if the reply was supposed to be confidential, it can be downright embarrassing!

    What are your biggest hassles with e-mail? Share them with our readers, and let us laugh (or cringe) with you.
