Hi sherr2

It does not have any of the hallmarks of a scam email and may be genuine, there are updates to the Microsoft services agreement.

as with any unsolicited email or if you have any doubt, do not follow any links.
use your preferred search engine to look for details online.

in the case of the Microsoft service agreement

2020 changes -

Almost certainly it's a scam. Microsoft does not send e-mail to its customers. Also note that the URLs all begin with mmed.microsoft.com..Microsoft's web site does not begin with mmed. Do *not* click on any of those links.
