    Title: Hi

    I didn't open the e-mail. But later another email was received by the same sender. This time, the title is: "PLEASE DO NOT OPEN EMAIL FROM ME WITH SUBJECT HEADING "hi". IT'S A VIRUS"

    wtf?

    It may be a spammer's way to test his bulk email software or service

    Hmmm... Did she ask you to download a certain virus tool to make sure you didn't get the virus?

    That's a good way to target people who think they're too smart for spam :)

    reverse psychology. except leave out the virus part of course. be like; "please don't read what i sent" or something in those words.
