Any futher details? Anythins special in that mail? What is your setup? – vonbrand Feb 28 '13 at 10:38
Is this email from someone you know? If so, contact them to find out what they've embedded into the email. Otherwise, delete the email and do not allow it to connect. – CharlieRB Feb 28 '13 at 14:46

There is something embedded in the email that is trying to automatically connect to an external resource. When it fails, it opens the email.
