This is most likely a hoax email. There are a few of these that circulate, giving warnings that your hard drive will be erased if you get an email and open it. They usually include information about how CNN and other news stations are reporting it and that no anti-virus companies can stop it yet. If that's the type of email you got, the email itself is not dangerous. These emails only cause problems because someone will get it and then forward it to everyone in their inbox, so it just perpetuates the hoax.
You can research these on many of the AV sites, such as http://www.symantec.com - do a search on hoax emails, and you'll find a list of them.
