I've gotten everything from business plans to divorce papers sent to my firstname.lastname@gmail.com address. In some cases I've tracked them down and called their cell phones, and they still mistakenly send me email. There are some people whose email automatically gets re-routed to the 'correct' account with a note, and they continue to use my email address. Some have even sent me nasty emails saying they're blocking my address, as if I am to blame somehow for their incompetence.

I understand that people make mistakes and typos happen. But when you're dealing with legal documents there's no excuse for this kind of oversight.

How does that work? Have you created some sort of filter? (How do you make sure that it gets the correct emails?)

Yes, I've created a filter so that any emails from certain people automatically get re-routed to the intended recipient.
