Interesting.  I've gotten a few similar ones from my own ISP over the last couple of years.  And, of course, I get them from "Microsoft" practically daily.   

"This is to inform you that your request on: 01/10/2019 2:17:20 p.m. to remove your account from microsoft server has been approved and will be initiated one hour from the exact time you open this message."

Whenever I get one of these and read the bold part it makes me think of the famous line, "This tape will self-destruct in five seconds."  :)
