Big cheque from Mt. Gates!

I have received an e-mail along the lines of send this on and you will eventually receive a very large cheque from Bill Gates.
I know this is a type of chain letter and I have deleted it but can this type of thing corrupt my address book and send it on remotely?

Norton AV has not flagged anything up so I presume there is no virus!

just one of many scams, if you have deleted it there should not be any further problem.

Yes, IF it had a virus attached and IF you opened that virus.

Otherwise, no.
