NHS email system borked by one idiot
The NHS’s email system is under pressure after one idiot decided to send an email to everyone.
More than 1.2 million employees are currently trapped in a “reply-all” email hell.
To make matters worse, the email was just a test but it prompted a series of reply-all responses from annoyed recipients going out to all 1 million plus employees of the organisations. The difficulty is that people cannot resist emailing replies to the thing to tell them to stop emailing, asking what is going on or asking to be removed from the mailing list.
