Microsoft and AOL are now the largest Internet companies and in an effort to make sure that Internet Explorer remains the most widely used program, Microsoft and AOL are running an e-mail beta test.

We're not going to help them out with their e-mail beta test without getting a little something for our time. My brother's girlfriend got in on this a few months ago. When I went to visit him for the Baylor /UT game. She showed me her cheque. It was for the sum of $4, 324.44 and was stamped 'Paid in full'

    So yeah, you did actually! :whistling:

    It's amazing how many people fall for this stuff - I think it explains why so many phishing emails are sent out.
