You're hot!!: Ever heard of hot tuna??It's a sandwich as well as a 60's rock group.So go ahead and heat it up if it serves a useful purpose but if you intend to ingest it (I hope) just do so in a reasonable period of time. If it sits around too long it just tastes awful and- could be a nice meal for some nasty bacteria. Also,be sparse with the mayonnaise;with too much it gets messy and it has a lot of calories
