    no and i never get these kind of e-mails

    Ignore it. Log on to your account as normal if you want to change your password. These emails are fakes.

    go ahead, fill in the form...give us a laff :-D

    Ignore it

    i wouldnt click on any links asking for password changes unless i requested them

    Did you list an alternative e-mail when you signed up for your hotmail account?

    And that alternative e-mail was the account that received the above e-mail?

    accountservices.msn.com
    I pasted that into my url and my hotmail e-mail came up in this.

    I'd take a guess that someone, who knows your e-mail, is trying to hack your account.
