Is This File Malicious?

I received an email from my accountant and thought it was legitimate; it was part of a forwarded email chain between us, so someone obviously accessed his email client. In any case, It looked legitimate, as it was part of our email correspondence.

It was a zip file which I unzipped. The file is named-----> IT1.zip

Here is the email content.

I have attached it here. The link above will also take you to the file.

Does someone have the ability to check this file and tell me what it is? I actually unzipped and entered the password. I later became suspicious and emailed the sender; he confirmed that he did not send it.

Any help/info would be great!
