Ever since I created my Gmail account as my name, I’ve gotten occasional emails that are not meant for me at all, but are meant for people with the same name. Now, I have no idea how other people are getting the impression that my name @ Gmail is this other person’s email address, but it’s been frequent enough to make me wonder.
Over the past couple of years, I’ve gotten flight confirmations from SFO, notes from an aunt, a copy of a HS kid’s resume, and lately group emails from a group of Sununu supporters rallying for his election.
Usually, I do send a reply letting them know they’ve got the wrong address. Do you?
Wonder what Google’s advertising within Gmail thinks of all that? 🙂
