They just want you to email back, the spams are sent out to thousands of addresses, and if you email back, they know it's live.

They can either try to hack it to use your address to send further spam, or sell it to various databases.
So far as I'm aware, actually opening the email doesn't do anything, just if you reply.

I could, however be wrong
(and I hope I am !)
