Too bad I already made the switch, he was a bit late in sending this.

OK, if this is a joke, I'm sorry for ruining it :\

but if you think it's legit, let me just point out that this is in the OPs junk folder (as is evident by the "Looking for an email? If you don't find it here check your blocked senders list" message, the bit of an orange bar visible at the top of the message, and the fact that it's right next to a message with "real men please apply" in the subject line), so either someone (or yourself) is trying to trick you, or else the guys on the outlook team decided to mark all emails from Microsoft's CEO as junk for the LOLz.

Not his email addy...I doubt he'd misspell his own name. His credentials are publicly available...

Microsoft

Steve Ballmer, CEO

(425) 706-8448

This is a spam email if your really got it....what do you call it? Spoofing? And obviously, even if you didn't notice the spelling mistake in his name, its content is ridiculous!

I got that, but I'd like to know who's sending it out and to whom? A quick search shows several different forum threads about it on various sites. Kind of odd.

Haven't ruled out the possibility that this is Steve Ballmer pretending to be someone pretending to be Steve Ballmer.

If that was really from Steve, why would he keep referring to Microsoft as "they" and not "we"?

but it was just that, spam, too many mistakes (gammatical or otherwise) for it to be genuine

Anyone who got this email and even considered the slightest notion that it might even possibly be .01% legit should never ever ever be allowed to use a computer again. Ever.

Should really be moved to Jokes & Funny Stuff.
