email不论在个人生活学习还是工作中都占有举足轻重的地位, 很久之前我也不知道回复全部是什么意思, 我庆幸我在在它上面犯错之前明白了它的用法, 也没有因为它犯过错误, 对于发送的动作也倍加小心. 希望某些同志注意这个按钮后果的严重性.

I answered my phone recently to hear a friend shrieking in my ear. “Check your inbox for the email I just sent you,” he wailed. “And please, please tell me I didn’t hit Reply All.”

What happens when we hit

“reply all” by mistake? The result can be very embarrassing to say the least. Elizabeth Bernstein offers some tips on how to avoid making such a potentially costly mistake.

You know that feeling: You hit Send—and your heart nearly stops.

This shouldn’t still be happening. After almost two decades of constant, grinding email use, we should all be too tech-savvy to keep making the same mortifying mistake, too careful to keep putting our relationships and careers on the line because of sloppiness.

Sadly, we are not, as Bill Cochran, a 44-year-old advertising creative director, can attest. Last summer, as the Dallas agency where he works, the Richards Group, was gearing up to produce Super Bowl spots for a major client, Bridgestone Corp., his boss sent an email to about 200 employees with a schedule of meetings where creative teams would present work, competing in rounds until the agency selected ads to present to the client for review.

Mr. Cochran seized the moment to rally his writing partner. He drafted an email reply critiquing the in-house competition, noting which colleagues he thought would give his team a run for their money—and which wouldn’t. “It was written in locker-room talk,” Mr. Cochran says. “I listed the people I thought were ‘gonna bring it.’ “

You can guess what happened next. Minutes after hitting Send, he got an email. “Oh God…Bill,” a co-worker, Wendy Mayes, wrote. “You just hit REPLY ALL!”

Mr. Cochran felt the blood drain from his head. He reread his email several times, telling himself it could have been worse. Then he sent out a second Reply All message: “Sorry about that. I am going to go climb in a hole now.”

“We all say these things,” Mr. Cochran says, looking back. “But most people aren’t stupid enough to put it in an email.”

Used intentionally, Reply All has its benefits. It’s convenient. And it can be polite, especially in a work situation.

“If you were in a face-to-face meeting and someone made a comment or asked a question, you would be considered rude if you whispered your reply in just that person’s ear so no one else could hear it,” says Patricia Wallace, a psychologist and author of “The Internet in the Workplace.”

But Reply All is dangerous. It makes us feel in the loop. And it can be a way to toot our own horns. Never mind that we hate how group emails multiply like rabbits in our inboxes. “Many people lean toward covering their rears by overinforming their bosses and colleagues,” Dr. Wallace says. “They can then say, ‘Well, I cc’d you on all that debate last month…Didn’t you read it?’ “

Why don’t email programs have a “dummy button” that pops up when we hit Reply All and asks, “Are you sure?” There are applications for that, such as Sperry Software’s Reply to All Monitor.

“It’s a tricky technical problem to solve without getting in the way, because there’s a certain velocity at which people are using these applications,” says Bill Wetherell, director of design for AOL Inc.’s AOL Mail. “There will always be the person who lacks boundaries and will say things that he shouldn’t say. We can’t prevent that.”

To make email more like in-person communication, AOL is considering ways to show faces, rather than just names, in the To field in a new email product coming out in the next six months. “I wonder if the Reply All problem would occur if you saw 100 faces in the email,” Mr. Wetherell says.

Microsoft Corp.’s Outlook offers a standard template that users can elect to get a warning if they try to email to more than 50 people.Google offers an Undo Send button in Gmail, which works for Reply All emails, too. You enable it by setting a delay in your out-bound emails, from five to 30 seconds. If you don’t realize your mistake in time, you’re out of luck.

Helen Georgaklis wishes there had been a warning for one of her colleagues at a financial firm where she used to work. She was helping prospective clients, a couple from her church, refinance their home, and she introduced them to the colleague via email. His Reply All response? She recalls it was something like, “Thank you sexy Helen. I’m sure that all your male clients love working with you because you are so hot.”

Right away, the husband replied to say he was uncomfortable with the content of the email. The colleague apologized profusely to her and her clients. They continued with the mortgage refinancing, but after it was done, the clients shunned Ms. Georgaklis at church. Her working relationship with her colleague chilled.

“The damage was done,” says Ms. Georgaklis, 44, who lives in Montreal and founded a self-help book series.

There’s an even bigger Reply All mishap: the email storm. It starts with an email sent accidentally to the wrong distribution list. Then everyone starts furiously replying to all.

Some email storms have lasted so long—overloading servers with hundreds of thousands of emails—that at least one company, TV-ratings provider Nielsen Co., has disconnected the “Reply to All” button from its system.

In 1997, Microsoft weathered a storm involving an estimated 15 million emails. A 2007 email storm at the U.S Department of Homeland Security clogged the system with millions of emails.

Mr. Cochran, the advertising creative director, couldn’t sleep the night after his Reply All disaster. His “apology tour” began the next day. On the phone and in person, he said he was sorry to each colleague he named.

“A lot of people just laughed, and a few said they felt sorry for me that I had to endure the finger-pointing,” he says. “I think a lot of people felt, ‘Man, I am glad I didn’t do that, because that’s a lot of crow to eat,’ ” says Christopher Smith, 38, another creative director at the agency.

The ribbing went on for weeks. Mr. Cochran’s email went viral inside the agency minutes after it was sent. Co-workers sent their own Reply All retorts. Some called Mr. Cochran an idiot, some pretended to insult others and then asked, “Uh-oh, did I send that to all?”

“His name became synonymous with idiotic behavior, such as ‘Don’t pull a Cochran,’ ” says Ms. Mayes, 35, the copywriter who alerted him to his gaffe.

Mr. Cochran had to face his colleagues in the weekly creative meetings. One of his early ad ideas was to have a young girl who tries to stop people from reading an email where she lists the boys she thinks are cute.

In an ad that Bridgestone eventually chose to run during the 2011 Super Bowl—a spot Mr. Cochran and his creative partner called “Reply All”—a man frantically drives around town, running into offices and ripping out computers and snatching Blackberrys from people’s hands to keep them from reading his email.

Mr. Cochran had lots of time to reflect on ways to avoid repeating his mistake. “I felt awkward right up to the final presentation, where I had to tell the people at Bridgestone that this was based on a true story,” he recalls. “Everyone who was named in that email was in the room with me.”

His advice: Move your Reply All button as far from the Reply button as possible. “And now I certainly gut-check what I want to say about someone before I put it in an email.”

[repost]如何“加密”你的email地址

现在在网上要小心,无论是保护好你的用户名和帐号,还是我们的电子邮件地址。在网上有很多爬虫程序专爬我们的电子邮件地址,一量被爬中了,那么你的邮箱里就是一堆又一堆的垃圾邮件,就好像我的haoel(at)hotmail.com一样,在7、8年前,每天几千封的垃圾邮件。现在hotmail的垃圾邮件过滤得好一些了,不过也有每天40封左右的垃圾邮件。但是我们在自己的网页上又需要发布自己的email地址。所以我们需要搞乱我们的邮件地址,就像那种非常规的搞乱代码一样。不过,我们还需要能认人读的出来。

一般来说,在网上现在很普遍的做法是——

  • 1)用图片,可以用PHP动态生成那个验证码式的。
  • 2)把@变成at,把点变成dot,如 haoel(at)hotmail(dot)com之类的。
  • 3)把a变成@,写成haoel@hotm@mail.com

不过这些还是能被爬到,用图片的方法不利于用户拷贝粘贴。下面介绍几种方法:

第一种:使用CSS样式

反转字序

1
2
span.codedirection { unicode-bidi:bidi-override; direction: rtl; }
<p><span>moc.liamtoh@leoah</span></p>

加入些不显示的字符串

1
2
p span.hide { display:none; }
<p>foo@bar<span class="hide">null</span>.baz</p>

第二种:使用Javascript

最为简单的方法是:

1
document.write("haoel" + "@" + "hotmail" + "." + "com");

或是:

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
    var string1 = "@";
    var string2 = "haoel";
    var string3 = "hotmail.com";
    var string4 = string2 + string1 + string3;
    document.write("<a href=" + "mail" + "to:" + string2 + string1 + string3 + ">" + string4 + "</a>");
//-->
</script>

不过更为强大的是使用ROT13加密,这里有一个ROT13的在线工具,或是使用PHP的ROT13的函数str_rot13

1
2
3
4
<script type=”text/javascript”>
document.write(“<n uers=\"znvygb:unbry@ubgznvy.pbz\">”.replace(/[a-zA-Z]/g,
function(c){return String.fromCharCode((c<=”Z”?90:122)>=(c=c.charCodeAt(0)+13)?c:c-26);}));
</script>陈皓的电子邮件</a>

这些方法还是很有效果的。

我知道的太多了

    今天我看了看学习了一下微软的OneNote的使用范围和方法,论辩在讨论中发现了Outlook这个东西,我以前只用过Outlook express,但只是在个人用用没有了企业级别的系统中协同使用过。我今天突然又发现M$总是做重复的轮子,做系统的轮子给不同的车子,一下说一下Outlook和Live mail,他们有相同的功能但确实完全不同的使用理论和UI。

    这篇文章的写出来参考了我在手机上看到的“测一测……”的一篇文章。这两个个人资料管理软件同样集成了通讯录、日记、邮件管理等功能,但是windows live mail中这些功能是跟在线的live服务密切相关,与此同时Outlook中这些功能却是自成一套只保留在本地。我个人感觉功能上是这样的:Outlook>live mail>windows mail>Outlook Express,顺便说一下windows mail是vista中替代OE的产品。个人感觉Outlook是给企业级用户用的,主要用来协作,如果是只是个人使用的话就用live mail吧,而且跟live在线服务紧密相联,这可能就是M$的初衷吧,把企业产品和个人产品区分开来,或者说把收费产品和免费产品区分开来。如果个人仍然在使用OE或Windows mail,那么仅以使用一下live mail,更能上多了个live服务。我研究了一下我决定继续使用live mail,毕竟我也算是半个同步控了。

    在联系人方面由于live mail有自动在线同步的功能,所以即使难用一些也要用,但在日历方面我却有点犯迷糊,其竞争对手Google的日历也是非常好用的,可以与Android同步,而Android的手机也是我一下手机的第一候选机。这些产品的选择确实需要一些细细的斟酌,对以一个一知半解的用户来说倒好说了,对边选择一个就好了,但是对于我这样了解比较多的用户选择起来就比较的困难了,免费的东西太多,每个都想用啊。

    有时候知道的太多了也并不是一件好事。

Post this blog by email

This blog is published by sending email, It’s a good way to publish in China because of the Great Fire Wall.

About Twitter

I registered one account on Twitter which is @Woolni about few mothers ago, and then I’ve nearly forgotten it. I want to use it days ago, but I found the account has been suspended. I am very surprised, because I have never used the account before except registered it.

But I get a normal account now, I feel Twitter’s service is very nice, because you just need post them a email which describe your problems and they will be handled quickly. Thank Arite who is the administrator of Twitter, my account get normal under his help. Comparing with services in China, it needn’t to fill the wizard step by step, it’s very nice.

Though most of my friends can’t see my Tweets, I insist using it still, because I consider it to be a sticky note, I don’t care whether others notice it, just like my blog on wordpress.
