Is This A Hack?

I got this email claiming to be from
Hotmail
Saying that my account couldn’t be varified. I haven’t changed my password and can still sign in and all but don’t know what the craic is. Here is the email, and i’ll obviously change my email address and not provide the link. On second thoughts, I will provide the link, but do not click. I didn’t thinnk hotmail could be hacked into. Normally i know spam, but this is weird.
