The person who sent this mail had company clients email address in his contacts and one of the names was similar to that of my colleague. The person in question used the auto complete feature to type in the email address.

By mistake instead of typing my colleagues email he typed in the client’s email, this email went to the client fortunately the email was about a weekly meeting to be held that Friday. It could have been much more worse if the email in question would have contained critical information.
