Is it phishing? No, just RIM sending their recruitment mail...

A couple of days ago I got an email from Human Resources. No company name. The subject suggested phishing - RIM: Important information about your application at Research in Motion. I looked at the SMTP source before opening the message and saw the usual phishing email - your account has been updated, please go ahead and reset the password, etc, etc.

The return address was RIM_Do_Not_Reply@invalidemail.com, which is not RIM's domain name and further confirmed the nature of this email. The email addressed me by name and provided a link to rim.taleo.net to reset the password. Temporary numeric user name and password were provided and there was a base64-encoded HTML file named current_email_in_html.html. A text-book phishing email.
