    I received this strange mail today:

    (I replaced the end of the userID with XXXXXX in case somebody tries to open it and made the link unclickable.)

    It's an HTML mail, but there's no dangerous content. Sender address seems to be like in most spam mails (some_name@some_company.com, no full name given), according to the headers it's been sent from a dial-up connection in Denmark.

    Any ideas what this is about?

    What's the point of this, then?

    I'm registered at Nintendo Germany's website, so the UK site from that link won't let me in. The strange sender address and mail headers don't look like those from other Nintendo mails at all.
