Misdelivered Mail

  • by

When it’s physical mail, you have three choices. You can throw it in the recycle bin, tell your (over-worked, underpaid) mail carrier to return it to sender, or take a detour and see to it yourself that it arrives at its intended destination.

It’s harder online. There’s certainly no benefit to anyone in forwarding spam. But sometimes a message arrives that’s meant for someone who is not you. The easy thing is to delete it. But the kind thing is to hit reply and let the sender know of their error.
