Is this genuine Microsoft or someone trying to steal my account?

I got an email on Gmail : click here asks for password for my Hotmail account

There are the usual warnings.

Do I give my password or just delete the email

Your 'click here' takes me to my gmail acct! However, I'd just delete.

Obviously a phishing email. Microsoft wouldn't email you to ask you for your hotmail password... that is so... LOL

Delete it, it is a scam and there seems to be plenty of similar ones at the moment.

Thanks all. I've deleted it but not that Gmail did not identify it as bad

With tens of millions a day to be checked the odd one is bound to get through.

Don't forget there are thousands of people working full time every day to by pass Google's systems, and some of them are very good.
