A: It is impossible to know without more information, but it sounds like whoever sent you the email is seeking to avoid a lawsuit (thus the "pre-lawsuit steps") through some sort of settlement. But again, without knowing the context and facts that attracted the email in the first place, it is difficult to know anything more.
