I have had an odd problem where I work. I have been at my job for 14 years. Email where I work is set up by first names like email@example.com. Two weeks after I started this job I sent my boss an email with confidential information in it. At the time there were more then one person with the same first name as my boss. Of course these other people's emails were not set up exactly with the exact same first name as my boss.
The confidential email I sent to my boss ended up getting to another person who had the same first name. Of course I got in trouble for it. I thought it seemed strange because I remember very clearly sending it to my boss. I am an Accountant and certainly know enough to be more then extra careful with confidential information. I just let it go and chalked it up to I that I had made an error. I made sure to use more then extra care when sending my boss any emails. I wouldn't be stupid enough no to make sure this situation didn't happen again.
Another two weeks went by I had the same experience with another confidential that I sent to my boss getting to someone else. This time I became suspicious. I know I had not send this email to the wrong person.
This has happened in spurts since I have been at this job.
This is what I need to point out. This only happens when I send my boss a confidential email. It has never happened when I send an email to anyone else. It again only happens when I send a confidential email to my boss.
I have tried everything. I have had IT look into the problem. I have tried blind copying myself. I have set up separate contact list. Nothing has worked.
Yesterday I had something else weird happen. I had to prepare several small spread sheets for my boss. I checked them all over several times before I sent them. On one of the spreadsheets I noticed something funny going on. it seemed like it did not want to save properly. I checked this spread over again several time and it finally saved and was correct when I sent it.
My boss emailed me saying I have provided incorrect information on one of the spreadsheets. I checked my original and when my boss received is not what I sent.
I know what I am about to say is going to sound totally crazy, but this is what I have concluded after all the experiences I have had.
This is what I know has been going on for several years now. Something is happening to change my emails and even attachments after I send them.
I honestly feel that my boss has had a hand in this. If this wasn't the case why are things only happening when I email my boss and no one else?
Would anyone know anything I maybe able to do?
I appreciate any input anyone maybe able to provide.
