This message is for those of you with MSN Hotmail. I don't think it will be much help if you send the message while using some other type of Hotmail.
Anyway if you do have MSN hotmail please send the message to some people you know.
There's more than one hotmail???
I know this definatley seems a bit suspicious but I'd rather not find out that on the 1st of Novemeber my email account isn't working.
If this is truth,and i have no doubt that you have ensure it dear JVD,i prefer get rid of my hotmail and create an account in yahoo till i get rid of them too if they asking for money.I find it ridiculus.
This looks like a classic spam message.
They have no way of tracking these messages through and I have seen loads of things like this on Yahoo too.
I would consider this a hoax, I do not have this email and have a hotmail account.
There is no way they would charge you to use MSN messenger as evberyone would stop using it and start with Skype or Google Talk, or Yahoo or... etc etc
Classic scam and spam
Do not send any messages, don't reply, just delete and ignore it.
This is what I see at MSN Hotmail. I don't see anything about charging and this is the URL they gave. I think this is a hoax..........................delete it.

Yes this is a hoax email.
I received the same message here in NZ and there is no way that it would be true.
People are always making up hoax 'chain' letters that are complete rubbish.
Most of the time I don't even pay attention to the letters, so there is no need to worry about it.
If hotmail made users pay for their accounts, they would lose huge numbers of users to other online accounts such as Yahoo and GMail.
It's not much of a worry but it's just a rather tedious work to send all my contact my new address [for example Vatsim]. Anyway, I guess I'll just have to wait and see.
Delete it, ignore it.
Anyone who believes this is a . Even go to sites on BBC , and there are articles about it being a hoax, this thing started inn 2001!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it was supposed to be november 1st of 2001, and how the is sending tht message to 18 people gonna make msn stop?? HMM???
