I recently wrote this email to a colleague:
What is your email address? I want to pass it on to someone, but I have no idea what it is!
No, I'm not a complete idiot. I don't think I am. But, yes, I sent an email to a person asking her what her email address is.
The problem is the email system CPS uses, First Class. When you compose a message, in the "to" field, you type the person's name, either first or last. The system then shows you a list of every person who works for or attends CPS with that name. You click on the name of the person you're trying to send a message to, and the system does the rest. Nowhere does it actually show the person's email address. I've clicked around, made Laura my contact, looked at all information associated with her, and there's no sign of an address.
So I had to send her an email asking for her email address, possibly the stupidest email message ever written. Just another way my employer wastes my time.
