Actually you can sign up to have Update announcements sent to you via e-mail, but the announcements are VERY specific that MS does not and will not send the updates to you via any form other than the windows update site or the autoupdate program (which of course runs on the local machine). So any time an actual update arrives via email it's not MS, but announcements (which I do receive) are perfectly valid. If you look at the information contained in your link below it states: "No. Microsoft NEVER sends emails with security update attachments. You can subscribe to mailing lists to receive Microsoft security bulletins..."
