Weird E-mail

  Macaonasa 21:31 26 Jan 2004

Recently, I have received e-mails in which I am not the sender nor the recipient. They are not SPAM; the participants are involved in European politics and one party is arranging the visit of a Euro MP to a conference here in N. Ireland. The only date on the e-mail is 25 Oct 01.

I wonder if this is the e-mail equivalent of crossed lines? I remember that recently a man received details of British budget plans in an e-mail not addressed to him.

I would just delete them, its the responsibility of the sender to make sure they have the right address, not only that you never know what will happen if you respond to them, you may get a flood of spam!

I am not the addressee - the Euro Mp is.

set up a message rule to have it deleted automatically if you receive it again.

you can do this in OE, outlook by going to 'tools' , 'rules and alerts'

It might be BCC to you

I don't mind receiving them - you never know what tasty morsel may turn up.

Don't keep it a secret from us then will you :-)

Check your diary - you may be supposed to be in Strasburg or Brussels.

I haven't got my 2001 diary.
