Help me out here, I think I may be missing something. When I send an e-mail asking Steve a question and I cc Bob and Jane, it’s because Bob and Jane need to know the answer as well. So, when Steve replies just to me, I have to forward the answer to Bob and Jane. Then Jane will reply, just to me, and I have to forward to Steve and Bob.
I understand that some people cc the entire world on every e-mail, but I don’t. If someone’s name is on there, they need to know the information. Am I the only person who does this?
Yesterday, I spent all day playing messenger girl between Steve and Jane. Technically, I didn’t need to be in the conversation–I just needed to know the consensus at the end. But neither one would e-mail the other. Just me.
Someone explain this to me. Oh, and I believe this little bit of information makes a difference: Steve, Bob and Jane are all lawyers.
