    Hello There,

    My reply was

    To be honest, I find THAT one of the best jokes she sendS! HAS SHE forwarded you that 'Jessica Simpson' Joke she is fond of? , I hope not!

    Is my reply correct?

    Do we use Has she more that did she in British?

    What about?

    "To be honest, I find that [to be] one of the best jokes [that] she has ever sent! Has she forwarded you that 'Jessica Simpson' joke she is [so] fond of? I hope not!

    Do we use "Has she" more that "Did she" in British English?
    "Has she forwarded" is the present prefect. Compare:

    [1] Has she done it yet?
    [2] Did she do it yet?

    In questions, especially question about possession, "Does she" is common in North America:

    EX: Does she have a pet? (North America)
    EX: Has she a pet?
