It goes like this: Lots of little hearts going upwards in all directions to the music of 'What a wonderful world', and lines of a ? verse intercepted by animated pics mainly of children and animals. Verse goes like this:
As I've matured -
I've learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is stalk them and hope they panic and give in. [picture is below it]
I've learned that one good turn gets most of the blankets. [picture is below it]
....and so it goes on. [excuse my practising on formatting, it's fun.]

I received it from a friend, but it has lots of original messages at the top of it.
Would like to send a fresh copy to others without all the junk. It's really beautifully done.

Anyone out there know where I can get it from??

Using Avant Browser at the moment, as I can't figure out why I can't post in this new forum from IE. It worked on the old forum. Plenty of time to work it out anyway.

Would have thought the email sender would have been first port of call.

Sounds like incredimail to me.

Maybe I'm reading you wrong, but why can't you just delete the previous senders' messages before you send it on?

Thanks for the replies http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/images/icons/icon10.gif http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/images/smilies/biggrin.gif


KatiMike: will give Yahoo +card a try.

Cicero: don't know these other people, there are lots in the BCC. The one who sent it to me doesn't know the original sender.

Spartacus: have tried deleting and they won't go away. Tried copying and all I get is the hearts. But have been reading up on how to make my own musical emails using html so may go down that route if all else fails.

Have you tried this mob? or is this not what you meant?

I remember getting that email sometime ago but didn't keep it, sorry. You many not be able to find it anywhere online as it is probably one that someone created and was then passed around the world, as they are inclined to do.

It's just an HTML formatted e-mail. Someone probably set it up in an e-mail program and it's been FW:ing it's way round the world ever since.

You could try searching for some of the words in Google - that might help but I think it unlikely.

FYI a lot of people despise those kinds of e-mails.

Google if your friend (http://www.google.co.nz/search?hl=en&safe=off&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&q=I%27ve+learned+that+you+cannot+make+someone+love +you+stalk+them+hope+they+panic&btnG=Search&meta=)

Thanks Ninja, found there were more lines than the one I had. Some were not quite what I had in mind.
Can't train my friends to alter their Outlook Express so I don't get all the other forwarded addresses. Real pain.

Oh, the cure is so easy ;) If you can't cure them, block them. Just bounce them 'till they learn to act responsibly (Broadcasting addresses 'round the net is decidedly anti-social). If that doesn't work within 3 1/2 days, rev up the Harley, rip round and blow their front wall off. (That's ok because it is a traditional custom. Well, except they don't live in Jericho, and you can't find that sort of trumpet these days.)

Small problem though....it's not just their forwarding addresses that are on it. My mailwasher shows me approx. the 1st 21 lines and guess what they consist of???
They will have to get their friends, and the friends of their friends etc to sort their act out as well.
But they do send really funny stuff that I enjoy. Suppose I should appreciate that instead. PS. showing an unknown violent streak there R2X1 ?? :horrified
