Is this a scam?

Got this email for both my at&t email accounts. Is it a scam?

Looks like phishing to me.  If you  mouse over the att.com/privacy/update link (DON'T CLICK IT) does your email client or browser (i.e., wherever you are reading that email) show you the actual link somewhere (location bar, status bar, where ever)?  That's usually giveaway it's not legit.  And "hosted email"?  Why didn't they reference the att/yahoo email service by name?

 

TRASH IT.
