Strange e-mail and DNS questions

Hi Folks,

I think my firewall has been turned up side down.

Sendmail log reports the following message:

Nov 26 12:51:22 internet sendmail[24572]: MAA24570:
to=<farhan@dapsys.com>, delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=virtual,
relay=dapsys.com, stat=Sent
./var/log/maillog

Sure farhan is NOT configured as mail user.

This is the message I received :

its time for namaz i'll meet you in night and i have
to complete my project as well,by hook or crook Warna
pata nahi kiya hoga..........
Funny, hein ?
Now, my DNS log is reporting since Friday the following error messages:
Nov 26 22:04:32 internet named[481]: Lame server on 'CAI.EDU.CN' (in
'CAI.EDU.CN'?): [202.205.160.3].53 'ULTRA1.SECCET.EDU.CN'

Nov 27 09:21:27 internet named[481]: Response from unexpected source
([205.188.157.242].53)

Questions:
a) Some keys to understand how that e-mail was delivered.
b) What means Lame server ?
c) What means Response from unexpected source ?
Anyway, my firewall will be powered off and rebuilt with new security
filters.
Thanks in advance.
