HBO Max Blames Failed Email Intern for “Integration Test”

Social media was in an uproar tonight after thousands of HBO Max subscribers received strange emails titled “Integration Test Email # 1,” which was ultimately blamed on an HBO Max intern.

The email was likely a mistake by an HBO Max developer or marketer who ran some testing on their platform and mistakenly sent an email to all subscribers on the streaming network.

There is not much in the email as it simply has a subject of “Integration test email # 1” and a message that says, “This template is used for integration tests only” as shown below .

As a test email sent to all HBO Max subscribers wasn’t bad enough, the HBO Max Twitter account blamed an intern for the explosion of emails sent in error.

It seems that interns are being blamed a lot lately, with the SolarWinds CEO recently blamed internally for an insecure ‘solarwinds123’ password in a production environment.

When HBO Max sent the email through Sendgrid, a popular email marketing platform, it was likely a marketing test that was mistakenly sent to all registered HBO Max accounts.

Even though the email was harmless, Twitter recipients had fun making jokes about the HBO Max email.

However, some took a more serious note by expressing concern that the HBO Max developers were testing in a production environment rather than a test environment.
