This is a Virus.
I work for IBM and on Monday and Tuesday at least everyone received many,
many of these messages with slightly different subject lines. Our IT
department informed us TO JUST DELETE THE EMAIL, NOT TO OPEN THE ATTACHMENT.
If you open the attachment then the virus picks up everyone in your address
book and sends out a note to them.
