I get the kookiest email.

Hello

Can you please add my name to the distribution list asap? Thank you.

luser@employer.dom

Loretta User
Senior Account Manager

That's it. That's all.

No mention of which distribution list, what's distributed via it, not even who is, at present, a member. No clues to go on.

Perhaps "Loretta" assumes that there exists some single platonically ideal distribution list, and all she needs to get ahead in the dog-eat-dog world of Senior Account Management is to get herself added to it?

(Okay, so really, this is that our FTP server runs NcFTPd, which sends out notifications to various internal users when clients upload files. But we've got like fifty of those notifications. I doubt "Loretta" wants to be on all of them...)
