Bogus Microsoft "Reactivate Your Email Account" emails doing rounds

Phishing emails purportedly sent by Microsoft are targeting the company's customers and trying to get them to reveal their login credentials and some personal information.

The given pretext is that they need to reactive their email account.

"In compliance with the email upgrade instructions from Microsoft Corporation and WWW email domain host, all unverified email accounts would be suspended for verification," the email claims. "To avoid suspension of your email account and also to retain all email Contents, please perform one time automatic verification by completing the online verification form."
