Email bombs --- the kind you can't call back.

Has anyone here fired off an email that they wish they could call back?

More later but I just had to bribe an assistant to delete a message from someones computer.

Yeah, I have had some of those....



But being a network admin where I work allows me to delete those messages before they are opened.....



Oh, if you are using an Exchange Server for email, you can go in and recall the message.... I have done that on several occasions.

But that only works when it remains in the Exchange server, once it leaves through SMTP....... My friends passwords are all super simple though...I guessed at least 9 of them.

At my last job, the owner sent an email to an employee detailing his complaints with their performance. The employee got angry and sent his girlfriend a copy of the email with his reply of what an @ss his boss is and how clueless he is about everything.

The email was also sent back to the owner. The owner showed me the email and we had a good laugh. The employee had received the email in the final stages of documenting his poor performance and was let go shortly after all this.

I wonder if this is what the boss was hoping for? There have been a few times when I let my rabbit as* overload my bull dog brain and couldn't retrieve the letter sent.

No ... and it wasn't used as part of his dismissal. He wasn't even told that it got sent to the boss too.

The employee was even given unemployment. I'm not sure, but I think the owner could have used the email as leverage for denying unemployment, but didn't.

What the boss hoped for, was that the employee would quit on his own, since he was obviously disgruntled.

Hopefully all the info was correct and wouldn't have needed any edits.

Unfortunately it wasn't a draft

There was an accounting girl in a small division that sent a hate email out about "whom ever stole her chocolate slim fast from the fridge" Unfortunately she did a SEND TO ALL (GLOBAL) instead of (LOCAL) IT guys said she had about 1500 replies

I've done it more than I care to remember. Now I am getting fairly good at hitting reply instead of reply all. That one got me in some trouble too.

Its always good if you are pissed off to resist firing off the prompt reply.

I sent a few I regret, but nothing worth mentioning.

A friend, however, really screwed up. We were both working for a Fortune 100 company. She sat in a cube across from me. One day at lunch, she was reading email and LOL. I asked what was so funny. She offered to forward me a bunch of dirty jokes she had received in email. She fat fingered the address and ended up sending the mail to an admin in the corporate law department. The admin was not amused.

Pretty nasty jokes. The one I remember:

"What's the difference between doing 69 and driving in the fog?
When you're driving in the fog, you can't see the ********* in front of you."
