Is this an official email? It is threatening to close my account permanently RRS feed

  • Question

  • I received an email telling me that Windows team discovered a virus in my email folders and asking me to directly reply the email with my name, user name, password, territory and country or my email account will be closed permanently. At the beginning I believed it and clicked "reply"... However I don't understand how my password is gonna be encrypted in my response email and I stopped. Please please tell me if this email is REALLY from Microsoft, because it is threatening to close my account permanently. I have 2 windows live account but only one of them received this which is something I thought to be suspicious, too..
