Email about platform upgrade by Jan 22

Is this a real thing? I'm to upgrade. The return email is a cox email, but it is supposed to be an administrator. It all seems fishy, but no one needs to lose their email either.

    SCAM! The link goes to Snipfeed. I have heard about this before. Scammers are taking advantage of the change to Yahoo email. Forward the email AS A ATTACHMENT to phishingreport@cox.net.

    Jen123  Please delete the link to avoid the possibility that another forum user will click it.

    A new forum user supposedly posting contents of a scam email on a weekend is suspicious.

        It may not be anybody.  It says Community Manager.   I included them when I mentioned moderators on the chance that someone actually is monitoring it.  Moderators aren't always available on weekends.  That's why a post on a weekend from a new user supposedly asking if an email is legitimate seems suspicious.  Maybe OP is the scammer.

        I also used the icon to report this discussion.  Apparently, no one monitors that either.
