I have just received an email advising me to install this new update for Adobe Flash Player.

I am questioning it because of the reply address.

My Mac Mail thinks it is junk mail.

The reply address is "Adobe Customer Help <bounce@techmartil.com>"

I have not seen this before.

Is it legitimate and safe to use?

The email is absolutely fake.  If you still have the email, please do the following:

The malicious email must be sent as an attachment, not forwarded, to maintain specific information needed for forensics.

I don't see "Correct" below your reply so I am sending it this way.

I had deleted the email before you replied so I can't forward it.

You're welcome.

If you happen to receive another, or similar, email, please do forward it to phishing@adobe.com

Apparently when a thread is marked as a Discussion, it doesn't show the 'Correct' button.  If it's marked as a Question, the 'correct' button displays.
