Computer Security & Viruses/suspicious email

Question
I received an email from info@myname.  The body of the email said "To Remove write to,
63E 11400S #255Sandy,UT,84070
Or see this"
I am afraid to click "this" at the end of the email which is in blue and obviously a link.  The email was clearly not sent by me

Answer
Hi Paul,

Apologize for not responding sooner (working).

Here are two reasonable options:

1: Ignore/delete and don't worry about it - Spammers send out millions of these kind of confusing abuse messages.

2. Analyze the email header to find the possible origin and report it to knujon.com  See: whatismyipaddress.com/trace-email about how to analyze the header.
