If I don't hear anything to the contrary I'm just going to consider it phishing.  I also sent a copy to customer support from their website web mail page.

I heard back from D-Link and the email is legitimate. I was also informed that similar messaging will be added to the mydlink site as well.

Thank you, I never got a reply back from them.  Will they stop working at midnight, or something. If it's as important as that you would think it would be communicated a bit more??
