Dear Account Owner,

We have recently confirmed that different computers have logged onto your Hotmail account and multiple password errors have been entered; as it has been used for fraudulent purposes.. Now we need you to reconfirm your account information to us. Click your reply tab, fill in the columns below and send it back to us or your email account will be suspended permanently.

Name: ............... .......................
User Name :........... ...................
Password: ............ ....................
Date of Birth .......... ...................
Country or Territory ........ ...........

Here are some ways to help you manage your account after you reconfirm your account.

1.Create an archive - Set up a folder on your PC’s hard drive where you can save large attachments. Then just delete them from your inbox. You’ll still have them and your in-box will be that much smaller.

Sincerely,
