This e-mail was sent out to determine which registered members no longer had a valid e-mail address, so that the mail server would stop e-mailing them. There is nothing more to it than that.

Well it said something about being asked to verify my email address. So do I have to or is it okay I don't now have to do this?

Nope. if you got the e-mail it is verified already. The point is we were looking for e-mails of registered members that bounce back as being invalid e-mail addresses. This is so the website can reclassify these members as having an invalid email address. You are fine.
