What's the worst you've fecked up on an email? 16:01 - Sep 19 with 2689 viewsBrixtonBlue

Today, I sent a mass email where I CC-d everyone instead of BCC-ing them. Around 130 people who, instead of receiving a personal email, could now see everyone else. We're talking very important people in my industry, in terms of getting employment. I wanted to die.

It didn't actually turn out too bad, and the replies I got from people with their own stories of email mess-ups were brilliant, and helped me feel a little better about myself. One in particular told of a colleague who accidentally ‘replied all’ on a client email. It read “Argh. I wish she would just f*ck off!” The client, a massive global brand you’ve all heard of, then did exactly that.

My f*ck up was nothing in comparison.

Anyone else got any email embarrassment stories?

Twice.

Once I sent an email about how I really didn't want a specific person to come to an event I was having and then sent it to them...

Second time, to an ex who was a red head and extremely sensitive about it I sent her an email calling my boss a ginger tw@t. As soon as I hit send I thought F**K as she was mental.

Not totally relevant to the OP but I accidentally WhatsApp messaged my manager at the time a picture of my poo down the toilet when I should have sent a print screen of google maps directions. It was a decent turd though.

Worst email I ever sent was "yes" when I was asked to do over time. From then on in I was the first one they went to, and got the arse if I said no

I sent this to my family the evening before the 7/7 bombings and awoke to a barrage of abuse to those who didn't check the time I sent it.

Top that.

Say what you like about Footers except question the size of his tackle. As per usual, the universe gifted someone with a sizeable package but no one ever lets him close enough to use it.

Not email but I once was having a conversation via text with my then girlfriend's best friend. I then accidentally sent my reply to my girlfriend that basically said if I was single I would want to be with the best friend! A very awkward conversation was then had with my girlfriend who some how let me get away with it!

A friend once sent a photo of herself on holiday.
I replied "You look really fit."
Too late, I realised I had put an a instead of an i.

Mines text rather than email.

Last year I had a job interview and afterwards texted my girlfriend to say I thought it had gone ok.

Only I didn't text my girlfriend. I texted my boss. My boss who had just interviewed me.

Fortunately I didn't brag in any way (not really my style), and secondly in turns out I had knocked it out the park and got the job.

I was born underwater, I dried out in the sun. I started humping volcanoes baby, when I was too young.

Had it the other way round.

Dealing with a bloke on the end of the phone, who, in fairness, had done quite a lot of preparation for something for me, and ended up not getting the business.

Gave him the Dear John, got an email later to addressed to 'Kirsty' (?) saying 'That timewasting nob Funge has done it again'...

1) I forwarded an email to St Ed Council - meant for a friend - slagging off someone at the council I'd had recent correspondence with, calling him a c***.

I did think he was a c*** so I suppose it didn't really matter, but I was embarrassed if I'm honest.

2) I phoned a colleague to have a moan about another colleague and mistakenly rang the fecker I was moaning about. I was quite some time into a considerable rant before he managed to get a word in and tell me.

I once sent a very important client an email saying 'Thank you for the help you've given us...'; except the letter 'l' is below' the letter 'p' on the keyboard and I hadn't typed help!!!

Similar but not a typo. About 18 years ago my wife gave her Dad her old mobile phone. Before she gave it to him she'd saved her text messages to her sim card for her new phone, but didn't realise they were still saved on the phone. (For those who've only ever known smart phones, there wasn't the notion of a profile on the phone or a 'reset to factory settings' option.) Anyway, we'd only been married a couple of years at that point and I'd spent quite a bit of time working away from home. Let's just say there were a couple of message exchanges that no parent would ever want to read - let alone a father of his daughter!!! The only saving grace in hindsight is that the phone she gave him was the last one she had without a camera on it!!

Depends if it got to the public domain and if the email server was hosted on a public route or not.

Oh, and of course it doesn't look like any exchange of pu loc data was part of the email chain in this scenario

Not quite that stark but when one of my colleagues started working for me , he spent the best part of a week sending e-mails ending with "Burgers" rather than "Best regards".

He was mortified but auto-correct kept doing it.
