We have all heard stories that are cringe-worthy enough to drive us back in time: a catty message about the head honcho that accidentally ends up in everyone’s Inbox; a snarky comment about needy customers that finds the hands of your full contact list; or a deliciously salacious and highly erotic note meant for your sweetheart that lands on the screens of all your colleagues. Looking for a hole to bury yourself in? And all this could be yours with the single press of a button: “Reply-All”. These email etiquette mishaps can make you blush, and maybe even cause you to consider hitting the Want Ads. At times they can have even worse consequences, such as legal implications.
