Unopened email: me stupid or it fishy

This morning I received an email: sender Phillips, but I could not recall any contact with that name, nor to my recollection had I made contact with the electronics giant..
The return path
QFF6UUM-GA45-9DOO-K65YSG-95A96-M-M2-20090813-560f9d39c644812a91@philipsglbl.bounce.ed10.net looked OK, but in view of my doubts (or paranoia Wink) I checked the domain info and was not assured. And another search brought up, ‘No whois server known for the given domain', adding to my uncertainty
Am I being stupid by misunderstanding some of the source and search info? But if I am not, how did it manage to slip through?
Source info and domain info are attached
No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

Looks genuine to me...
ed10.net are a company that deal in e-Marketing and Philips are a renowned electronics company.

Re: Unopened email: me stupid or it fishy

More than likely - why are you concerned?
The whois record looks perfectly normal to me, as do the email headers and your concern is not immediately obvious in your first post.

@Lucerne, you don't have very young children do you? (Thinking less than a year old..?)

I wouldnt answer it or open it, unless you want a load more rubbish, they are after you e-mail and to verify that you do exist
Just had a careful look, it does seem genuine

In my anno LLXXIII it's not likely Wink, but sorry I don't get the question.  Crazy

Re: Unopened email: me stupid or it fishy

Phillips Electronics is not just an electronics company. (Yeah, I know, but hey, *they* chose the name...)
One of their subsidiaries is Philips Avent, who manufacture and distribute lots of products in the 'Mother and Baby' type marketplace.
Its not uncommon for new parents to be given a 'gift pack' or such products at the maternity ward, and I just wondered if there might be that sort of connection. Just looking for something obscure since you mentioned you didn't recall dealing with/contacting/registering with Philips.
Perhaps it might be via another less obviously related sibling or subsidiary company.
