I just received this email from Microsoft. Why have they used " you are receiving" present progressive ?
Sorry if formatting is not correct. I tried to select all then chose- Arial and font size-3.
The present perfect would be logical from the reader's perspective. The writer was thinking from his or her perspective: "I'm writing this email. I'm sending it. You're receiving it."
It's natural as written, even if the choice of tense strains logic a little.
