    I am on the board for an animal rescue, and I just sent a private email to the executive director, and somehow I was not playing close attention and it went out to the entire group. This has to be the biggest mess up I have ever done. Not cool at all. The backlash on this is going to be really really bad. Not looking forward to this.

    It was an email that was meant for one person, and our entire group got it by mistake.

    Thanks Buddy but I used google groups with gmail so I can't recall it. Besides it is just out there. I hope it doesn't cause trouble too. Oh well. No point fretting. Can't take it back at this point.

    If it is private - do NOT use email.
    Because even when it is done right, it is still no more private than a postcard.

    That stinks. But like you said, it can't be undone now. Hopefully it won't turn out as bad as you think.

    I did st similar to this a few weeks ago. My fiancé and I were arguing via text and without noticing I was cursing out his brothers wife. Bless her heart she never responded to it but the next day she said I was right to be angry and she knew those texts was meant for him. Shew!
