I received these emails that contain character I'm not quite familiar with:

X-Spam-Report: ---- Start SpamAssassin results

And then just recently I received this:

The following mail can't be sent to tips@###.com:

From: sales@MYDOMAINNAME.com
To: tips@###.com
Subject: Look for an additional
The file is the original mail

The interesting part is the above that says from sales@MYDOMAINNAME.com sends an email to tips@###.com

Hmm....I have never sent anything to that address.
Could someone try using my server to spam?

Those two headers (as most others) are easily faked. The software of the sender can enter anything they like there. In this case, they probably tried to circumvent some naive spam filters, by making it look like you sent it yourself.
