If you're site is a phising site I don't see why this isn't legit...

It isn't phising site, its classic online code generator.

If in anyway at all your site "Clones" the login form of outlook then yes it is classed as a phishing site. They will try to shut your site down if you insist on pushing there buttons. You could just let it side and see what happens right?

Ive made clones for all the major social networks for usernames and passwords youd be surprised how much account information you can get in a day. This was done as a social experiment of course.... but yeah, it's frowned upon so re evaluate your website and decide whether or not what your doing is right.

On the other hand if it was really Microsoft they would pass on the claim to your webhosting and you will be getting an angry email from them.

To be honest though it looks like a retarded email.

1. You can write to them (on their official email) and say that someone is trying to scam you and is sending from notice@.. email. Ask them if this email belongs to them.
2. Did you use copyrighted words in your domain name?
3. Did your website was similary looking to the MS website? The same styles, colors etc.
4. Did you ask users for their usernames, emails or other private information.
5. Where do you host your website?
