    Haven't got that one but I suspect it's a phishing email as Microsoft wouldn't ask you to log into your account to agree to terms of service.

    It's a valid Microsoft web page but I would ignore it. No idea why you got it, but Microsoft doesn't work that way sending out random E-mails.

    And ... even if it's legitimate just ignore it. They've promised to delete your account if you don't respond! Perfect!

    Well, there are these paragraphs, true. I didn't read it well enough I guess.

    ii. Account Use. You must use your Microsoft account to keep it active. This means you must sign in at least once in a two-year period to keep your Microsoft account, and associated Services, active, unless a longer period is provided in the Microsoft account activity policy at https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?linkid=2086738 or in an offer for a paid portion of the Services. If you don’t sign in during this time, we will assume your Microsoft account is inactive and will close it for you. Please see section 4(a)(iv)(2) for the consequences of a closed Microsoft account. You must sign into your Outlook.com inbox and your OneDrive (separately) at least once in a one-year period, otherwise we will close your Outlook.com inbox and your OneDrive for you. You must sign into the Xbox Services at least once in a five-year period to keep the gamertag associated with your Microsoft account. If we reasonably suspect that your Microsoft account is at risk of being used by a third party fraudulently (for example, as a result of an account compromise), Microsoft may suspend your account until you can reclaim ownership. Based on the nature of the compromise, we may be required to disable access to some or all of Your Content. If you are having trouble accessing your Microsoft account, please visit this website: https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=238656.
    d. Service Notifications. When there’s something we need to tell you about a Service you use, we’ll send you Service notifications. If you gave us your email address or phone number in connection with your Microsoft account, then we may send Service notifications to you via email or via SMS (text message), including to verify your identity before registering your mobile phone number and verifying your purchases. We may also send you Service notifications by other means (for example by in-product messages). Data or messaging rates may apply when receiving notifications via SMS.
    e. Support. Customer support for some Services is available at support.microsoft.com. Certain Services may offer separate or additional customer support, subject to the terms available at www.microsoft.com/support-service-agreement, unless otherwise specified. Support may not be available for preview or beta versions of features or Services. The Services might not be compatible with software or services provided by third parties, and you are responsible for familiarizing yourself with compatibility requirements.
    Do you use a Microsoft Account to login to your computer with? If not but you have a Microsoft Account, that may be why you got this or if you use Outlook or OneDrive.

    It is fake.
    1 MS do not threaten to close accounts when they update their terms of use.
    2 They do not conclude with that copyright line.

    Sample of a real one

    The address appears real because it's simply recognised by this forum as a valid URL format when copied and pasted into this forum - the underlying code to the email is not contained in that copy > paste.

    If you're curious, check the underlying code behind the email and/or the displayed URL ...what's the bet it'll end in .ru , .bg , or something similar

    Lousy grammar. Even MS wouldn't be that sloppy.

    Explain to me how that document is residing on a Microsoft domain?


    is anyone else got this email-msa.jpg

    ... or are you saying the E-mail is bogus? If so what is it gaining since it is pointing to a valid MS site and document?
