" Do you mean THIS Marc? "

The wheels of email grind slow but they grind exceedingly fine
  [vote for,

I'm working with a new employer, just long enough now that I should no longer be making the newbie errors that are so amusing to all the first few times they occur.

I think I've finally trained up to where I won't make this mistake again, but my boss, my IT guy, and one of the engineers all share the same first name.

When I get in a hurry I occasionally send meeting invites to inappropriate persons.

You'd think that Outlook would have an option like {Query if first name has multiples in your contacts} but apparently not.

And why not?

This Marc doesn't want any confusion. http://i.imgur.com/FAc7xj0.jpg

       Is there no option for you to associate a handle with a name? Then you could specify Marc1, Marc2, and so on.

       Or "Boss", "IT Guy", and "One of the Engineers".

       I can think of a few meetings I've been in where I wouldn't have minded an inappropriate person, if only to liven things up.

       Marc, Mock and Mork.

       But never Meek.

       Is it Marc Jacobs? [Link]

       I usually type in last names.

       Call a meeting about it.

       Never allow yourself to be hurried.

       Never invite anyone to a meeting, and never accept invitations to meetings.
