Had to remove the video from the post, sorry folks.

  1. That is so true! Not with images or anything like that, but I have inadvertantly let private information out such as my workplace etc to persons I wouldn’t want to have that information.

  3. I have implemented a 5 minute delay rule on any outbound email that I send from my desktop mail client. Affording me the opportunity to make a revision or withdraw the email completely.

    I only wish that I could do the same with my Outlook Web client at work. (Haven’t taken the time to investigate..)

  5. When Outlook first featured the “auotcomplete” feature for the To: line several years ago, it bit me real bad.

    I sent out the graphic of someone bent all the way over with his head up his ass to what I thought was a close friend of mine. The autocomplete feature instead selected a random coworker and I almost got fired for it.

  7. I’ve done this a few times. First time it was mortifying, and the second and third times just annoying.
    You think I would’ve learned the first time!

  9. I did something worse….setting my “reply to” to my ex GF email address, (nice freudian slip BTW) and talking about her to common friends. So it was not me who got the answers but her…. A few days later, hell broke…..
