Any email domain with the 2nd [secondlife] and 1st [.com] level values of secondlife.com are legitimate/

@email.secondlife.com 

@e.secondlife.com

Meet this criteria.

The 3rd level value differentiates between the pool of mail servers used for various purposes.

service@mail.secondlife.com

no-reply@secondlife.com

no-reply@mail.my.secondlife.com

*@lindenlab.com

those are valid second life email-adresses.


In any case if you are insecure where a mail comes from send a report to :  security@lindenlab.com

 

And just in general: if you are being asked for passwords or similar secret data in such mails : NEVER answer it, and NEVER click any link in it. No serious company (linden lab included) requests such informations via mail. Report any emails of that kind directly to the security@lindenlab.com mail.

Edit: @ Karen, didn't know there is one with @e.secondlife.com too. Never recieved any message from that. Good to know

Yeah still I'm paranoid these days as well - I always manually follow links if they take me to any login screen to make absolutely sure that it is legit. There are ways to mask the links imbedded inside emails and I'm never falling for one of those again, ever. - LOL
