domainadmin.com phishing spam email that isn’t.

Registered a new domain name this evening and very quickly received what looked very much like a phishing email from domainadmin.com

The email itself:

> From: PGregg [mailto:xxx@example.com]

> Sent: 24 June 2014 23:26

> To: xxx@example.com

> Subject: VERIFICATION REQUIRED – Please verify your domain name(s) as soon as possible

 

Greetings,

Please read this important e-mail carefully.

Recently you registered, transferred or modified the contact information for one or more of your domain name(s). As of January 1, 2014, ICANN requires all accredited registrars to verify your new contact information.

You can read about ICANN’s new policy at: http://www.icann.org/en/resources/registrars/raa/approved-with-specs-27jun13-en.htm#whois-accuracy.

newdomainname.com

In order to ensure your domain name remain active, you must now click the following link and follow the instructions provided:

http://approve.domainadmin.com/registrant/?verification_id=1234567&key=abcdefg&rid=12345

Failure to follow the above link and complete this process will eventually lead to the suspension of your domain name(s).

If you have any questions, please contact us.

Sincerely,

PGregg

Turns out this is actually legitimate.  Posting this in case others wonder the same and google happens to direct them to this page.
