Does anyone use outlook-did you get one of these?

Received this email and not sure if it is spam or not as the address it comes from is ebay@ebay.co.uk , which sends a little odd if it is from Microsoft.

Hello mxxxy@hotmail.co.uk,
The Classic version of MSN will be replaced by our new version on 14th MAY 2015. So it's time to upgrade, before you lose your email access.
When you upgrade your MSN
Your email service won't be affected and you'll keep all your old contacts, folders and messages. Plus you'll get:
faster email
the latest spam protection
unlimited email storage
How you can upgrade your account

Thanks for choosing Outlook

All my emails are through hotmail, and this was sent to a hotmail address, which also seems odd. Not sure whether to delete it or save it (the link mainly) in case I do have problems later. So if anyone uses outlook, did you receive this?

I use Outlook and have a hotmail account.
I haven't seen such an email.
