Hotmail - email re validating account

  AroundAgain 00:42 14 Jan 2011

Have received email, addressed to Windows Live, saying that a number of accounts need to be closed and my account is one of them selected. I need to verify recent use of my email account, by sending email address and password.

The email was not addressed to me personally, ie, not using my Hotmail account.

Is this some sort of scam or is this for real? Does anyone know about this??? Needless to say, I'm concerned if this is safe.

Many thanks for any help
