I delete anything from anyone I don't recognise and with a subject like that, what's been happening over the last few days and from an unused address I reckon you have done the right thing. Make sure you run a virus scan to be on the safe side.

If more people deleted unknown e-mails instead of letting their curiosity get the better of them and opening them, Attachment's or not, then fewer people would get these viruses and then maybe these sick people would go away and leave us alone. The worse thing anyone can do is have their Preview pane active, a sure way of getting and running a virus.
