Charliej is correct. This is bogus. Besides, its generally considered poor email etiquette to send chain mail, which this definitely would be.
Also, as a rule of thumb, if I can't verify it by a reliable source (i.e. M&M's would post news of this on their web site) then take it with a grain of salt.
Um, but I would not quite say "NOBODY CAN GET INTO YOUR COMPUTER AND TRACK HOW
MANY E-MAILS YOU SEND". You'd be surprised. I don't want to freak you all out, but I have seen worse happen.
I have seen packets sent across the web w/o any encryption which divulges Social Security numbers, credit card numbers and the like.
Put it this way, do everything you can to protect what you consider critical and broadcast the least amount of information possible.
