Email that says my account will be deactivated from no-reply@microsoft.com

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.

Thank you for answering so quickly! How did they send it from an @microsoft.com email?

Its easy to spoof any address. Microsoft will never send you an email like that :)

Hi @HLJ-7302 ,

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.
