I have Windows Hotmail and I recently got an e-mail asking that I reconfirm my information because they said someone has tried to get into my account.


They said to resend my information otherwise I lose my account. When I went to reply- there was what lookled like a personal hotmail account e-mail. This looks like a scam. Can you call me and let me know what to do? My number is <removed by the moderator> 

I maybe stupid asking this but after using Outlook Express for the past 8 years on my old XP computer i find using Windows Live hotmail on my new Windows 8 machine somewhat baffling at times. I cannot seem to find a way of asking for any new e mails on demand and find myself just having to wait for as and when i get them delivered, any pointers please.
received an email which looks suspicious asking for all users to:  is this legit.

I've received an email from 'MAIL' asking me to verify my details otherwise my email account will be deactivated. The source is 'Newssend .com' 
I am suspicious this is a phishing scam.
Advice welcomed.
I received an e-mail from "windows live" asking me to verify my account info because there was a change. Is this legit or part of the Linked-in fiasco hacking?
