Don't click the link !

If you click the link, you are at risk of being hacked because you have no idea what server you're being directed to or what code the miscreants have prepared for your visit.

If you click the link, you've failed to protect yourself and others on your network.

If you just open the mail, you should be good if your client does not auto-execute code willy-nilly (meaning if you use Outlook you're likely screwed), but if you go and click the link, your machine is good for a reinstall.
