Another phishing expedition from the bottom feeder scammers. This one is quite obvious. Why would a company that offers email service want you to reply to another server? In this case “live.com”.
I hate to think that I am only known as an “undisclosed-recipient” by my server! They sure know my name every month when they request my service charge.
This is nothing more than a means used by scammers to steal one’s identity.
