    My girlfriend has just emailed me this email.

    What do you guys think?

    Is this a hoax? If it isn't, how can British Airways and Microsoft track this email?

    Sure, is, wasn't there one running around, where it said that it was from MS, said they were doing a test, and the more people you sent the email to the more money you would get?
    Every now and then, one of you won't annoy me.

    Yea, I got that one... supposedly Microsoft tracked the e-mail and the more people you sent it to, the more money they would send you at the end of the month. It was kind of fun to do but it got funny because MTV got some Microsoft reps to come on a show called "The Big Urban Myth Show" and they exposed that it was nothing more than a hoax. I can only imagine how many AOL users were disappointed that day.

    But micky05, it's a hoax, it's fun to send to people and see their reactions, but don't take it seriously. Next time you get one of those kinds of e-mails, think: "Why would they give me _____ (fill the blank in) for forwardig people e-mails???"

    - Cheers,
