Ingram Micro's email slip-up

02 Mar 10

New Zealand’s largest technology distributor has accidentally CC’d an email to hundreds of its clients. 
While the content of the email is unclear, The Channel believes it was related to a VMware pricelist, though rumour has it that separate internal emails were also sent out to the 817 affected. Many of those clients weren’t impressed. 
One client responded, “I have no idea why a client would be on Ingram Micro's mailing list, perhaps I am missing something...”
In an email that appeared to be sent to all Ingram Micro staff, the company acknowledged its mistake: “Please be advised that tomorrow we will be holding the new users inductions course which will include the very important subject of Email etiquette.”
