The hackers are getting smarter and smarter. The latest emails are pretty much perfectly formatted. At first glance you would never see that it was a scam.
It even has a lovely clickbait description.
But if you look closer and hover over links, you can quickly see that something is wrong. First of all, this comes from your own email address. Click reply and you’re sending a mail to yourself. Plus you are being addressed as Dear User, Microsoft’s emails don’t come out like that. Also, the slight space missing between punctuation is a give-away.
Then when you hover over all the links, they either come up with hashtags or elasticbeanstalk.com links!

This is what it is supposed to look like. Note the links to Microsoft and Office 365.
Nice try elasticbeanstalk! No cigar this time!
