I have a guy I used to know professionally and recently received an email from him stating that somehow a message was sent from his personal account that contained a virus. Looking at the “To” list shows a lot of other professional contacts.
This is the second time in as many years that I have got that warning from him.
My question: WTF? What kind of sites is the guy visiting? How unprofessional is it to send such an email? The message is basically saying he’s an idiot that shouldn’t be trusted with your email address.
I mean, I really don’t get how the circumstances can happen. I have never been infected with a virus or anything, and certainly have never had reason to send a warning email to everyone in my entire address book.
I understand viruses happen, and generally only to unsuspecting people. But I guess the big thing that’s getting me is how bad it looks to those professional contacts.
Has anyone here ever been in that situation? Am I wrong in thinking it screams of being unprofessional?
