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, 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 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.
