I get a lot of email at work that isn't necessarily for me.

Oops, I started a tangential rant there. Anyway, not everything that shows up in my inbox necessarily needs my attention. Today a message came in, and I glanced at the preview and it started off "Dear Bob and Liz". I assumed, of course, that this was one of those random things where someone put me in the cc list for reasons unknown. I went about my business for some time. Afew hours later I went through my inbox and realized that this was in fact a request for help addressed to me and my colleague Bob (who was out today). Oops. The moral of this story is don't use a nickname for someone unless you know it's one they go by, at least if you want a timely response.
