Stupidest email ever

I got an email yesterday at work that went to 167 people. The person that sent it was trying to figure out if their mailing list included everyone it should. She asked us to "Please let me know as soon as possible if you ARE NOT receiving these!".

Did you actually sit there and COUNT the number of people it was sent to ? Or do you techies know how to determine that without counting ?

I copied the whole list of names to the clipboard and then pasted them into Microsoft Word. Between each address, there was a semicolon. I did a search and replaced ";" with ":". It replaced them all and at the end said "166 replaced". I just added one, because the last name didn't have anything after it.
