Is hotmail trying to close down certain accounts by sending ACCOUNT ALERT ?
OR, the following mail from 'Window Live Team (firstname.lastname@example.org) ' a spam ?
Here is a quote :

I shall be thankful to receive opinion of my fellow hubbers.
You are being phished. There is a link at the top of your hotmail to report.
There are grammatical errors all through this. That alone should tell you the genuine company did not send this out.
For one thing do you think staff would send an email from an account such as "email@example.com"???
I own some web sites. If I really wanted my users information its rather easy for me to dig through the database to get your information. Why in the world would I need for you to send me the information that I am already storing on my web servers about you???
The same thing applies to a bank as well.
Come on people think about this stuff a bit more and the answer should always be obvious.
