    Unfortunately no I still can't see it

    In any case. Microsoft would only contact you via email if there was a problem with your account such as a payment overdue on a subscription service, or suspicious log-in activity on your account.

    reference the two possible domains that an email from Microsoft could come from in my first reply to see if the email is genuinely from Microsoft

    if you have already changed your account password you have taken steps to secure your account also note that while you did not mention any phone calls Microsoft will never call you on the telephone unless you have requested a phone call
     
  3. recieved a suspicious email

    could someone please inform me if this email is legit.

    the email I received this morning claimed it was from Microsoft and that they had detected suspicious log in

    the email said "We detected something unusual about a recent sign-in for the Microsoft account
    *** Email address is removed for privacy ***. For example, you might be signing in from a new location, device, or app."

    To help keep you safe, we've blocked access to your inbox, contacts list, and calendar for that sign-in. Please review your recent activity and we'll help you secure your account. To regain access, you'll need to confirm that the recent activity was
    yours.

    is this legit or some sort of hoax email tring to get my personal details ?

    Suspicious email

    Suspicious "Welcome to Windows 10" email?

    Hello,

    I came to his page after receiving the same suspicious email.

    I had written a reply asking you to confirm whether the suspicious email originated with Microsoft.

    I just received another, correct email, admitting that an error at Microsoft led to the suspicious email.

    Thank you
