I have gotten this annoying email 10 times in the past day. I've tried to stop them by email them back saying that I don't even have msn messenger on my computer & that I'm running Trillian that uses the msn data base & not the msn messenger program. But it hasn't worked yet :(

My inbox was *full* of them this morning. What's the deal?? It's so annoying!!

I just went and counted them in the trash folder, and there were 10 of them.

The thing is, I'm not even an MSN or Window's messenger user (no account set up that I'm aware of). Is this a hoax? :confused:

I've got an account and even use chat. I got like 7 of those this morning. They're a real piss-off. I didn't really bother to read them. :rolleyes:

I left my msn for one day because I was tired of going on the computer. SO the next morning I opened it and I had 416 EMAILS and half of them are from the same person! I was soooo mad!

There's a new e-mail virus that came out last night.(or was
identified last night) (sobig somthing or other). This might have
something to do with the new virus.
