    Default Is this a legitimite Zone alarm e-mail?

    Zone Alarm:

    I have been using the free Zone Alarm and i have been receiving a number of e-mails from you trying to get me to buy the ZA Pro or ZA Internet suite. (I actually bought the suite but due to some config problems i suspended use of it and went back to just the ZA free version)

    I just received the below e-mail (yet in a HTTP form) and broke the first rule of internet safety by clicking on the link (in a panic reaction of course. Is this a legitimate e-mail from Zone alarm? If not what should I do? I have run AVG 7.5, Spybot, and Adware, and cleaned out my temp files (nothing bad has been found so far).

    Thanks for you advice!
