So is this a scam or not a scam?

I occasionally help a friend with his website and he recently received an email from his registrar that seems just a bit weird because it only gave him a few days to respond. Here's what it said:

As a part of security processes, the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate in place to ensure your emails are securely delivered will expire on [DATE]. Prior to this date, we will install a new SSL certificate. As a function of this update, Apple device users will need to update their mail account settings to continue receiving email.
It then directs him to switch his incoming and outgoing mail servers to ""

The email finishes by saying that this does not affect users on Windows/Android platforms.

I think it's a super sneaky scam.

What do you think?
