I fell out with a work colleague, we were very good friends but these things happen. We both did things that were in the wrong. Ive moved on, changed departments etc.

Found out when I moved to my new department this work colleague had emailed the person I sit next to. I don't know what was said but my manager found out (not by me) and took them into a meeting.

I've recently become friends with someone else and again they have messaged me saying horrible things about me, name calling etc.

I find it very creepy how obsessed this person is with me. Surely after 7 months they would have moved on and wouldn't care what I was doing or be continuing to try and wreck my life.

Do I just ignore it and continue to do what I've been doing. I feel I'm liked in my department and I have 2 good friends at work and this person is very disliked by a lot of people through their own actions.

Mmm, I wonder if it's worth doing a request under the data protection act to see what contains your name?
Someone who knows more than me will be along soon I'm sure. But I think if you formally request it they would have to release everything that's been written about you, including emails.

I'd take it from there, just to make sure you're not getting gossip rather than fact

Sounds massively unprofessional on her part, she's doing herself no favours and probably comes across as a bit creepy. I'd feel very uncomfortable if someone I didn't know well started emailing me bitching about a colleague.
