Tales of E-Mail Woe

E-mail -- it was supposed to make communication easier. Maybe it would even make life itself more manageable. The benefits are obvious - speed, global reach, mobility. But many people today are feeling burdened by e-mail rather than liberated. It arrives relentlessly, demanding action. E-mail misunderstandings are routine. Try as you might, it can be impossible to avoid spam or e-mail diatribes about politics - even from friends and family members. In many ways, the ever expanding use of e-mail has outstripped our ability to manage it.

Send us your embarrassing or annoying e-mail experiences and we'll pick the best -- or worst -- of the bunch and share them with you.
