"Phishing email?"


  

          

Got a lengthy email from this address: msa@communication.microsoft.com
titled: Updates to our terms of use

Is it legitimate?

So, it's legit; and, wait and see how it affects the various MS apps, etc. I don't expect much happening with my MS account.

Bobbo and all others.... NO NO NO it is NOT legitimate. Microsoft is NOT sending you this. ITS ANOTHER FUGGING SCAM!!

Microsoft does not send unsolicited email messages or make unsolicited phone calls to request personal or financial information, or to fix your computer. Any communication with Microsoft has to be initiated by you. ... Use Microsoft Edge when browsing the internet.Apr 13, 2021

Look at the links that the poster on the other forum provided. This is a notification for people who have accounts for various Microsoft services.
