    It's spam.

    It was written like a nice friendly letter to get past the spam filter.

    Yep – it'll be a scam. They'll be blanket emailing Hotmail addresses and the like, and yours just happened to be one of the ones the message got sent to.

    No doubt he'll be offering some scheme that'll involve making the pair of you very rich, but in order to get the wheels in motion you'll have to send him a large wad of cash for 'administration purposes' or something like that.

    Just delete it and don't fret.
