We have recently upgraded all our customer e-mail addresses to Outlook.com.
Due to this, your Hotmail account needs to be re-activated.
You can do this by just simply logging in on the link below:
If your e-mail account is not activated within 2 working days it may expire.
This is a compulsory process that affects all our customers.
Thank you for your support,
The Microsoft Outlook Users & Security team.
Recipients of the phishing email message above are asked to delete it and not follow the instructions in it. But, for Outlook or Hotmail users who have already been tricked by the same phishing email, are asked to change their Outlook or Hotmail account passwords immediately, before their accounts are hijacked and used fraudulently.
