That is not an Exchange message.
That is being generated by something else.

Therefore the first thing I would do is check your domain MX records are pointing to the host that you are expecting - use the tools at dnsstuff.com to confirm. ISPs have a habit of resetting things back to their way of working.

The next thing you have to check is whether any third party tool is interfering with the message flow. As I have already said, the message isn't an Exchange message, so it is being generated by something else. This could be something on your site for example.
