One simple step now saves me much potential embarrassment with my email. Maybe it can do this for you, too, once you find out what it is.

Embarrassment of: sending email? Not answering email? Receiving email? Viewing email? Sending email to someone unintended?

Sending emails with something unintended? Typos? Words typed in the heat of the moment? Saving messages as drafts relevant? Typos in email addresses relevant? Mishearing a spoken address?

What I meant was that some people type their e-mails in a word processor (Word etc.) and then copy the text into the e-mail - instead of typing it directly in their web browser or e-mail client.

Is this a way to avoid mixing up recipients when replying to messages from different senders in the same browsing session? To avoid sending out drafts before you have finished editing them?

Do you type the email and save it as a draft, and then later read through it before sending?

Do you "save as draft" whenever you're interrupted while typing an email, so that you don't later inadvertently click "send" on the unfinished email?

Is the email addressed to yourself in case you accidentally hit "send?"

Or do you just leave the "Send" box empty.

Click on "save for later?"

Do you use a screen name only used for just that purpose? One no one knows about?

******** SPOILER **************
Having suffered the embarrassment of sending messages prematurely when I inadvertently clicked on 'send' rather than 'save,' I now leave the 'send' box empty until I'm actually ready to send a message. Sorry this puzzle was so easy (as measured by how fast it got solved), but please check out my new one, which won't be . . .I hope.

See now this is the thing. I am not too sure about how to handle this "spoiler" thingy. I solved this puzzle which according to your "spoiler" rule I should not have done without emailing the creator of the puzzle. But I didn't know I tagged the answer. Is that ok?

I can't speak for Nimue, but what I meant was you only email if you think you have the answer right away, Chek. Sorry I was unclear. =( I seem to be making a mess of things lately...
