Phishing has got nothing to do with receiving an email - it is about the content and whether you act on it.

The moderately large corporation I work for sends out anti-phishing email warnings then, within hours, will send out an email with a link to some third-party site or other with an odd-looking name.
I really am not sure whether you these are phishing or not but, now, just send them all to security to look at.
