Hey there, "the list".

I was wondering, i recently sat up my own smtp/imap server, behind my
firewall.. (running Exim/Courier)

And i had a little of problems with smtp spammers, so i finaly got the
relay settings tightened up, so that only i could recive/send messages..

Or so i Thougt. but now i get (not as much as i did earlier) messages
looking like this in the header :

where is the local interface for my firewall.
(all mails dont have these particular adresses, they come from different
hosts, yahoo, aol, etc etc..)

What's your firewall? Is your firewall receiving the e-mails then passing them to Exim? If so, it may not be modifying the headers of the e-mail to indicate this.
