Is this adress a valid MS one or a fraud?

Hello

I have received a mail from the following address, about a possible "unusual sign-in activity":

"account-security-noreply AT accountprotection.microsoft.com"

I did what was indicated to verify the activity on my account, but I am upset now.I have the green shield, but what is upsetting me is the fact that a web search about this address is not very reassuring, also the fact that it apparently should be instead:

"account-security-noreply AT account.microsoft.com"

Apparently the green shield should be the proof 100% that it is really MS? No reason to be upset about this address?

thank you.
