Not quite sure what to make of it. Any ideas? Is it spam? How can the sender use my postfix?

Thanks for you help.

Strange e-mail

Anyone can send an email as anyone else. If I sent you an email I could say its from the address you have posted and also specify it as the reply address.

Sender spoofing, which is what this is, is very common as it is used to hide the original senders identity.

It is spam, just delete it.

More details can be found in the Email: Spam FAQs tutorial.
