a minor irritant i seem to run across frequently is getting "undeliverables" forwarded to me from users of the mail server i admin-

*some* (but not all) of the time, if you actually *read* the "undeliverable", it will tell you why your message didn't go through in terms not requiring a lot of technical knowledge.

for instance, when you've misspelled the email address.

there's a metaphor somewhere in "people keep sending me error messages showing me how they can misspell things."
