My office is doing teleworking. My team's secretary is forwarding every day several (5 on average) emails that I already received through a general mailing list.
I want to tell them that we already get the emails and there is no need for them to forward those emails to us.
The problem? It is well known that they have little work to do and I do not want them to feel useless (maybe they already feel like that, which is the reason why they might be trying to help out by sending the emails in the first place). I have been unable to find the right balance of words.
I do not want to offend them but I desperately want to stop the emails because it duplicates stuff, particularly in this period where emails themselves doubled or tripled. I cannot block them because they also send relevant stuff.
How can I tell them they don't have to forward those emails?
