Reconnect to Facebook - phishing email asking for Facebook details?

I'm pretty sure I just got a spam email from an account purporting to be Microsoft saying they have been unable to connect to my Facebook account and providing a link to reenter my Facebook credentials. This obviously makes no sense since this feature was recently discontinued by Microsoft and while its possible its an oversight and is being auto generated from Microsoft it seems quite suspicious. The account name comes up as Microsoft Account and the email is connect at windowslivemail.com. Anyone else seen this?

Edit: did a search of my inbox and there are other messages from this address so may be legit but still strange this email is being sent for a service no longer bring provided.

The OP could not have said it any better "This is a feature that is no longer available" ignore it and move on.
