The newest scam: Mailbox full

I think this one is a bit more clever, although it still carries too many red flags for someone to believe it's a legitimate warning message:
Dear Valued Customer,
Your mailbox quota utilization ([my email address]) has exceeded 85%. You may not be able to receive all new emails.
Please click here to avoid losing your files & Mail Service
You can now increase your mail service quota storage and/or number of accounts(s).
