Do you reply when you receive an email not intended for you?

Apparently I have a very easy to mistype/misspeak email address and am constantly receiving misguided emails. I even wrote about this issue in the past (by the way my echild now has 10 absense and 1 tardy... tisk tisk tisk)

I was just wondering what other people do when they receive emails that weren't intended for you. Do you reply and let the person know? In the past month I received a funeral notice, a resume (to pass along), a picasa album invitiation, Budget rental confirmation, dog photos all intended for some one who has the same first initial and last name as me but different email. It's not always to the same person... sometimes it is to Todd, Terry, Teresia, or Thomas so it not only one person giving out an incorrect email address. So is it my obligation to reply to all the emails and tell the sender they have the wrong email address? Or do I let them figure out the mistake themselves? I mean I do feel a little bad that someone could miss a funeral or job offer because they got the wrong email address but can't everyone be a little more careful with who their sending this stuff too?

What are your thoughts?
