thats the 15th one of similar ilk in the last 2 days, i never open mails from people i dont know and rarely open them from people i do know but it ammuses me to keep getting bombarded with junk
What will happen sometimes is that if you reply they know it is an active address, they can then trace the IP etc, etc. sometimes they have a payload and other times it is a ploy to get you to part with your credit card and/or bank details.
well i did try nad post hte whole thing but aparently the gobldy gook code page that that view message source chucks up contained immages videos and download links so i would guess it was one of the payload scam nasties.

in the time since my last post i have discovered that its part of some "419 advance deposit scam" network and in addition appears to be acting on behalf of some botnet organiser so yeah just as well i use web mail and dont forward anyof it to my phone,
co-incedentaly the video's are are reported to be auto run when an iphone checks hte message so thats probably the target to infect anyhow, thank god i sitll have one of those crappy phone phones not some unprotected "smartphone"
Unfortunately Hotmail and the likes are the worse forms of e-mail on the planet as they are not real e-mail servers but web-mail servers that can and are hacked with monotonous regularity by the world and its dog. Spam in such systems is de rigour, comes as a built in, unwanted extra. The only advice I can get you is to ditch the "Hotmail" account and use the one provided FREE by your ISP and use "Outlook Express" or the like as your e-mail client.

As for the e-mail you received - it is a SCAM.
