    So i got an email supposedly from the Outlook Team on my web email, stating that I have exceeded my storage limit as set by the Outlook team administrator. They want me to re-validate my account via a hyperlink to ensure I can continue to receive email messages. This sounds very suspicious to me. I am not seeing the verified badge on the sender's name either. Has anyone received such emails from Microsoft's outlook team?

    The odd capitalization is suspect.
    So is the address from which it came from. (I could make that)
    The signature is weird, and refers to something (limit) I dont think is actually a thing.

    Verdict: Spam!

    That looks like a phishing email to me.

    "Irregular received of messages."
    Ye. This looks very suspect to me, don't click the link. If you already have I'd run a virus scan
