Has anyone received an email from Gmail similar to this today:

Dear Valued Member,

According to our site policy you will have to confirm your account by the following link or else your account will be suspended within 24 hours for security reasons.

http://www.gmail.com/confirm.php?email=myaddress@gmail.com

Thank you for your attention to this question. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Sincerely,Gmail Security Department Assistant.

Seems odd as I have been using gmail for ages. No one else I know with a Gmail account got one.

This (http://gmail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=8253) from the gmail site says that all url's from them will be from http://.gmail.google.com not www.gmail.com.
I would just ignore it.

This a phishing e-mail doing the rounds at the moment.
A phishing e-mail is one that appears to be a legitimate e-mail coming from what looks like a legitimate source asking you for private information such as your username and password or to click on a link to validate your e-mail address.
The messages are coming from virus infected computers probably from the latest MyTob virus.
Ignore and delete them
