Virgin Trains' ticket service has apologised to customers after mistakenly inviting tens of thousands of them to a luxury golf day.

TheTrainline sent an e-mail inviting recipients to an event at The Grove Golf Resort Hotel in Hertfordshire.

A spokesman said the offer was intended for a small group but was sent in error to tens of thousands of people.

Have you ever sent an email by mistake?

How many turned up? Were they permitted to play? Where the traffic cops called to direct traffic on the fairway? I am mildly amused by this! laughy_smilieroffle

Yes - I sent what I thought was a reply to a friend in America to my work colleagues.

Ermmmm! Since then I don't use aliases ....

Someone at work sent an e-mail to everyone who worked in the authority inviting them for a coffee after work because she'd hit the wrong button. Her mail box was flooded by the replies she got and she couldn't get any of her legitimate e-mails as a result. lips_sealed

I keep getting mistaken emails!

I mean, anyone who "Knows" me knows that my wife is completely satisfied in bed.

I've seen this happen with auto-replies at the holiday season - one person sets an autoreply, that replies to everyone on a long list. Three or four people on that list have autoreply set - which goes back to the originator, and so on and so on and BORK goes the system....

(Moral - set up autoreply sensibly!).

Seems that may not be the case...
