Just received an e-mail from a usually reliable source which was definitely not sent from the source - it's name is "A greeting card for you" - I've not opened it just deleted it.
Can anyone tell me if it is a virus, worm etc so I can inform the person from whom the e-mail was supposed to have originated and also warn anyone else who may have received the mail!

According to a web site I visited, there is a report of a virus with that description.

virus alert

I do not know if the one sent to you is obviously. I think that particular virus has been around for at least 5 or 6 months though. I hope this helps.

I might also add, contrary to popular belief, viruses typically come from someone you know, not a stranger. It is usually spread by means of an address book.
