    Msn just had this email

    sorry to break the news, but looks like all of those warnings were
    real! The
    use of msn and mail will cost money from summer 2007. If you send this
    message to 18 different people from your list your little msn icon will
    become blue and that will make it free for you. If you dont believe me
    go on
    ( msn.com ) and see it yourself. Dont foward this message, copy paste
    it
    so people will actually read it.
    Hey it is Andy and john the directors of MSN, sorry for the
    interruption but
    msn is closing down. this is because too many inconsiderate people are
    taking up all the name (eg making up lots of different accounts for
    just one
    person), we only have 578 names left. If you would like to close your
    account, DO NOT SEND THIS MESSAGE ON. If you would like to keep your
    account, then SEND THIS MESSAGE TO EVERYONE ON YOUR CONTACT LIST. This
    is no
    joke, we will be shutting down the servers. Send it on, thanks. WHO
    EVER
    DOES NOT SEND THIS MESSEAGE, YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE CLOSED AND YOU WILL
    COST
    £10.00 A MONTH TO USE. SEND THIS TO EVERYONE ON YOUR CONTACT LIST. NOW
    YOU
    KNOW WHAT TO DO. PLEASE DO NOT FORWARD THIS or REPLAY. COPY THE WHOLE
    EMAIL.
    GO BACK TO YOUR INBOX AND CLICK ON NEW. AND PASTE THANK YOU FOR YOUR
    ATTENTION
    Hey everyone, i dont normally send this sort of stuff out but had a
    look on
    the internet and its actually true . On the 30th of november , we will
    have
    to pay for the use of our MSN and email accounts unless we send this
    message
    to at least 18 contacts on your contact list. It's no joke if you don't
    believe me then go to the site
    ( news.bbc.co.uk/1/h…stm ) and see for yourself.
    Anyways once you've sent this message to at least 18 contacts, your msn
    dude
    will become blue. Please copy and paste don't forward cos people won't
    take
    notice of it

    Hi Esims,

    I think this is still rubbish, and wouldnt worry about it. The news artile says fees introduced in the next 12 months, but its dated Feb 2001! 6 years later and its still FOC.

    Don't think bosses at Microsoft will start an email with Her its Andy and John

    Thats what i thought, thats thats why i posted and the fact my friend send it to me not msn.

    My friends sent me this years ago, just your old regular spam me thinks

    poor john didn't even get a capital 'J'...It's totally spam, with the increase of better alternatives like gmail completely free, why would msn ever charge for a basic email account!!

    SPAM!!!!

    Littered with LOADS of spelling & grammatical errors! Don't even put it in your recylce bin - just delete it!

    they forgot to mention that if you done send it on you will be visited by the ghost of a bogey eating hairy little girl at 10 minutes past midnight, and she will sing to you, then kill you!!

    send this on to 18 of your friends!!

    pmsl!:giggle:

    kina along the lines of what I was thinking.
    But I think geekgrrrl articulated it so much better than I would have!

    SPAM, get rid!... and dont bother sending it on: it will only panic and annoy your mates.

    its already gone, my mate sent it to me and i put it on here.

    Anybody looked at the link - the BBC news report is from february 2001 :shock:

    They'd never do it, Even more so when Gmail has better spam protection!

    As for the "we only have 578 names left"

    Thats complete and utter tosh, Just by adding dashes, dots and numbers you could create thousands.

    I do have 2 emails addresses with them though, One for Ebay/paypal and one for general.

    But i use my ISP's email address more as that also has good spam protection.

    LMAO. Love these totally unbelieveable chan letter things people still repost. They look like they're written by 11 year olds. The spelling and grammar is appauling.
