Has anyone else gotten an email from “Microsoft Hotmail” at no-reply@microsoft.com like this? Is it legit?

    That is definitely not legitimate.
    Do not access those links or enter enter any information.

    Hi @HLJ ,

    Welcome to our forum!

    Agree with Andy, please don't trust any email that may pose a threat to your mailbox!

    In addition, there's an article that mentioned some ways to recognize a phishing email. From this, you can learn to spot a phishing message: Protect yourself from phishing.

    I received this one on Friday, but it looks so real that I don't![204292-capture-1.jpg][1] know what to think. I have not gone followed their instructions because obviously, I did not make the request nor have noticed any suspicious activity with my email. What do you guys think? Please help.

    I also received a similar email from 'no-reply@msn.com'. Can anyone confirm that this email is real or fake? If fake, how can the Outlook allow those guys using this email address('no-reply@msn.com')?
