I'll look at my cron jobs and see if anything should run at 7am otherwise, will check mail log. Any other hints what this could be?

As you see in the headers, this is a spam email sent to the address postmaster@web-designerz.de.

but it obviously comes from my system, I think its something sent by cron or another automated tool, that got interruptes, the whole SPAM classification comes from the email not being "complete" missing headers, etc. I must go check cron...
