That file was almost certainly malware... however, it was Windows malware, and as such, cannot in any way harm your Mac. The only known Mac malware that has been sent via e-mail within the last few years was part of an extremely tightly-targeted e-mail campaign sent to supporters of the Dalai Lama in Tibet, and it did not come disguised as a BBB e-mail.
