MSN: Anyone recieved an instant message stating you need to change your sign-in ID?

    Just got an instant message on MSN from Microsoft:
    Windows Live(TM) Messenger Service Staff says:
    Important service announcement: As part of a recent system enhancement, we need you to change your e-mail address to continue signing in to the Windows Live(TM) Messenger Service.

    I don't wanna change my email address! I'll have to change my PayPal and eBays address plus everything else I'm registered to!

    Anyone else got the message?

    A bit weird as I didn't get an email, looks all legit as the email address is:
    [email protected]

    And the screename is:
    Windows Live(TM) Messenger Service Staff



    Yeah ok, it's blatantly real that 10's of millions of people are all … Yeah ok, it's blatantly real that 10's of millions of people are all about to have to get new email addresses. I also heard that the moon is actually a giant diamond.


    I actually got that message to when i logged into msn tonight, i clicked on the link had a look at everything, seems strange the page was last updated in August 29, 2006... When i click to change my windows id name it says i cant at this time?

    No message for me.

    I have an ID - but use aMSN on Linux.

    I got that message too, just deleted it.
    Until i get an email where i can visit a site without clicking an almost certainly dodgy link im staying as i am.

    Very suspicious!!!
