But amongst the most embarrassing mistakes was emailing an offensive message to the colleague who was being insulted.

However, according to the poll, men were likelier to make a mistake, with 28 per cent having made an email faux pas, compared with 17 per cent of women.

The survey was commissioned to mark the DVD release of the TV film Going Postal, written by Terry Pratchett.
