Pubic Folders …I Mean Public Folders

22 Jul

Back when I worked a corporate job, I remember one of my co-workers telling me about how she sent out a mass email to the entire company with word pubic in it.  Her email was meant to enlighten the company on the new shared public folders, however she left out the “l” and spell check had nothing to say about it.

It is really easy to unintentionally offend someone with our numerous communications. That is why I love this simple tool to help you make sure you are not accidentally offending people with your email subject lines. Each email application shortens subject lines at different lengths. Depending on where it truncates, you could be left with some interesting and choice words. Thanks Mark Brownlow for this info and tool that I now use frequently.
