This morning I received an email from ...

    Mozilla@e.mozilla.org

Whether you've used Firefox for 2 days or 2 minutes, please share your feedback in a short survey.
It takes mere seconds and you'll help us make a better independent browser.

If you're straight-up loving Firefox, you can sign into your account and access your stuff (bookmarks, tabs, etc.) from any device.

is this a scam or a genuine Mozilla survey ?

Are you using a genuine Mozilla browser?
If not, that's funny..
@If you've ever signed up for anything Mozilla related... likely it's legit.

I was using Firefox on a now retired machine, and same email address for the past 14 years.

Is the email address Mozilla@e.mozilla.org a fake or genuine ?

Anything *.mozilla.org is genuine as only Mozilla has control of mozilla.org as you can see a example list at https://wiki.mozilla.org/Over_100_domains

The Mozilla@e.mozilla.org is used for say newsletters from Mozilla. Maybe you signed up on a page like https://www.mozilla.org/newsletter/ or https://www.mozilla.org/contribute/friends/ or https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/newsletter/firefox/. Or for example if you applied for something like in https://asadotzler.com/2014/04/01/tablet-contribution-program-application-results/

Some of these emails can mention articles on https://blog.mozilla.org/

It is interesting that so many people can think a email from *.mozilla.org can be fake as you are certainly not the first I have seen to ask about the @e.mozilla.org

Thanks James :)
I have been using Firefox since, it feels like forever .... about 15 years and a member of the Mozilla forum ... with the same email since the Juassic period

"Click me" invitations can be a timebomb.
Thanks for the outline on ... *.mozilla.org ... too.

Thank you Frank Lion :)

I am satisfied that this email and any from xxxxx@e.mozilla.org are valid
Cannot be too cautious these days ;)
