New SQL Express 2005 ?

P: n/a
Did anyone else get an email from Microsoft saying a new version of SQL 2005
Express is ready?

It came from an email that was from @email.microsoft.ca
which makes me think that the email is not a legit email.

Yes I searched microsoft's site,
found that as well.

I dont click on email links - i always go to the site instead.

Just funny that they would send an email from 'email.microsoft.com'
instead from 'microsoft.com'

Thats why I was wondering if anyone else got the same email.

I don't know if I got that one or not, but I get 3 or 4 supicious
emails a week from addresses claiming to be microsoft and asking me to
download an attached "high priority security update" or something
similar. I just delete them - it's not worth the risk opening them.

Thanks,

I wouldn't think so, especially if it came from "email.microsoft.ca"
..ca? That's Canada.

Good Practice: Never, Never download a file or give out any personal
information from an e-mail link...always go to the company's website directly
from your Favorites or google for it.

Yup... but me being in Canada I expect some emails from .ca

Just seemed well made.
Ive attached a quicky screenshot with a couply pasted images of the email in
this email if anyone is interested.

It came to my company account which I dont advertise anywhere. Ill give it
that, its a good job if it is a fake.
-And microsoft does have my company email for my vbexpress that I registerd.

Anway... Cheers... -Keep ur eyes open. :-)
