Silly mistakes even seasoned IT pros make #1

I keep meaning to post these…I’ve got a bunch,  but I’ll start with the one I just made.

I came into my office first thing this morning,  coffee in hand, and opened Outlook.

I was surprised that I didn’t have any unread mail….

I went to a short meeting,  came back,  sent an email and saw that it appeared that the recipient had responded immediately…except that there was no RE: in the subject line.

That’s right…the reason I didn’t see any unread mail is that last time I was in Outlook,  I was in my Sent items folder.  If I’d bothered to look at the left hand pane I’d have seen Inbox (60)

So yeah,  if an IT person ever makes you feel stupid…remember everyone does silly stuff like this….
