Is this a Phishing email (from "virginmedia.em@email.com") ?

I have received an email supposedly from Virgin Media which says:

"We are contacting you with important information regarding your Virgin Media account. Our IT security department have identified some unusual attempts to your account. We have been made aware that your account may have been accessed by someone else. In order to help protect you, please sign in to My Virgin Media <LINK> and provide your most recent account details. If this is not completed we will be forced to temporary suspend your account for further verification, to avoid being used for fraudulent purpose.."   

I have not followed the link.

The email was sent from this address:

virginmedia.em@email.com

Is this a genuine Virgin Media sender address or is it a phishing email ?

Thanks
