Subject: .NET Messenger User with Corporate Domain Address: UPDATE REQUIRED Mar 03 2006 07:40AM
Bongers, Coen (coen bongers logicacmg com)
L.S.,

any of you getting messages (yourself or from your end-users) with the below content.

They appear to be comming from Microsoft itself, I verified the SMTP path and it seems correct, however no additional information on this request can be found anywhere with Microsoft or on Google.


Any idea if this is a phishing attack or something else?
