This kind of emails are mainly used to lure innocent users. It can bring malicious codes that can also corrupt your pst files and you will not be able to use your outlook services. A spanish user also got this infection and asked for help few days ago. See what he asked me
Hola, mi nombre es Mark. Soy de España. Tengo un mensaje de spam en mi bandeja de entrada de Outlook y cuando abro el enlace de todos mis archivos PST se corrompe. No sé qué hacer conmigo por favor. Veo cuál es el mensaje que me dieron en mi bandeja de entrada.
I suggested him to not open this kind of emails in future and recover pst files using a third party tool.
In case if you also get any such kind of emails in your outlook inbox then do not respond it and delete that mail as quickly as possible.
