Is this email Legitimate?

I've had the following email allegedly from the Virgin.Net Webmail Team but with a gmail.com email and lots of typos I'd suggest it's a hoax.  Just flagging to be sure no one else sends them confidential details and so that Virgin are aware. This is what it said...

The best way to ensure that is to forward a copy to phishing@virginmedia.com so they can block any further emails.  If your email gets rejected due to spam content you will know they have blocked it already. 😉
