That's quite obviously chainmail (which is just a form of junk mail).

Actually, it's not really that ridiculous.
The whole point of chain mail is to either frighten or threaten the receiver.
In this case, it worked didn't it?
They have a point, and whether you like it or not, they actually work in some cases.

I hate these kind of things, but like Mad Tony said, they do tend to get your attention. Don't worry about it :)

they didn't frighten me (worried), they threatened but never frightened.
Chain mail is rather pointless, it does nothing useful:mis:

They might just want to see how far round the internet their little creations will go.

sounds like a big number but we need it to know how active your account is.

keeping track of this mail and will know if you don't send it to >the

I received that a lot of times... and even if they do close your account, you can re-open it. It doesn't affect your msn, I go a lot of times and they say that "Account Re-activated"... :) I think the policy is that you sign in at least once in a month, if not then they'll close your account or something :)

Hey, I cut out the long list of email addresses from your post Dr Evil, because spambots tend to scan forums and pick up addresses to add to their databases.
