I would say its a virus / malware. The email addy is not from greetingcard.org and neither is the link to get it.
Rofl that's like when people say "Check out this picture... picture.exe"
No! I'm Spamacus!

Sounds like one of Henry Ford's descendants, "choose from any one of these many options, as long as it is this one."
Anyway, from their website:
Email Scam Alert!
Beware of fraudulent e-mails stating you’ve received a greeting card or e-card from a “friend” or “schoolmate” or other unnamed person. Click here for information on avoiding this “phishing” scam.

Lol, that is obviously scam. The .exe says enough. That and the vague link and the emaildress of the sender. I won't even press links when I get "an inventation from an old classmate" . If they really wish to contact me they can sent me a regular email...
Yea Dontuz. I don't get any "Confirmation Instant Messages" for eCards or anything else for that matter.
Never open a .exe program unless you know who it is from, and trust the person sending it to you. It also helps if the person sending you this message isn't a dumbass, as chances are, they've ran the program first then sent it to you. ;)

I get those e-mails all the time. Junk 'em, bin 'em and forget 'em, that's what I say. Nobody I know is sad enough to send an "e-card" anyway.
That's a virus...
