This has to be the funniest support request I have seen in a long time. How can I reply without making sarcastic comments about there obviously being no problem because the user’s stupid email disclaimer tells the recipient to delete the embarrassing message? Extra points, of course, for sending an “urgent” message after 17:00 on a Friday.

I wonder if you can help me please. I have sent an email to someone by mistake. It has confidential information on it that the recipient shouldn’t see.
