I received an email about a class action suit

I have had these sorts of notices arrive by snail mail, but by email was a first. As the header said "Symantec", I opened it.
It begins (with my name misspelled)
"Dear Anjeline Booher

E-mail replies to this address will not be read or returned.

The rest looks like any other such notice.
Did I receive a scam, or is this true?
