    If the PC of anyone who has your email address has been compromised or any site where you have registered an email address has been hacked or your email address is published in clear text on any site, then your email address is well known by now. Forcing an error is a well known technique to allow a malicious site to take over your machine. If you are not sure about an e-mail just delete it, don't open it, don't view it, don't respond to it, just delete it. Unless you have a lot of time and are willing to expend a lot of effort, there is no practical way to trace the message.

    Is this in Outlook? You should not allow VBScript to execute in Outlook messages. Immediately open your Options dialog to the Security tab and make sure you are reading mail in the Restricted Zone. If you are, open the IE options dialog and increase the security in the Restricted Zone to high to stop Active Scripting from running in messages.
