I have often received legitimate e-mails from people who have entered other people’s e-mail address in wrong, and it got sent to me instead of the directed person.
I used to reply to these e-mails just saying a quick “Sorry, wrong e-mail!” to them. But I’ve received two in the last week from the same person. I don’t know if I should reply or just leave it alone. Obviously “Natalie something or other” is getting the content through her friend because they’re doing some orientation at a school in Rhode Island and the other person replying kept mentioning she was talking to this “Natalie” person.
Should I just do what Canada Post does (write on the envelopes RETURN TO SENDER) in bright red ink? I mean I guess it’s the same as dialing the wrong number, especially receiving one on my cell phone. I remember the first time that happened and I was like OMG HOW!?? But then I remembered that cell phones are proably more popular than the land lines and it’s much more easier to fool up on a number while dialing.
Have you ever received an e-mail that was supposed to go to someone else? What would you do in this situation?I’m probably just going to reply, once again and say that they have the wrong e-mail address. I wonder how many other people actually reply to these wrong e-mails? I certainly know that my boyfriend never does as he used to receive them on a much more frequent basis than I ever have.
