Hi, is this a phishing email? It doesn't address me by name, so I'm assuming it is. Normally I'd simple ignore and delete an email like this because it doesn't include my name, but yesterday a friend told me emails sent to a different address on the same domain are bouncing back to him as spam. So it seems odd that this email shows up hours later, although it could just be a coincidence.
If it helps, the raw source (with the email removed) is below, which appears to say the email came from an aol account... so IDK...
Thanks for any thoughts on this.

Yes, this does look phishy. You can report it at https://supportcenter.godaddy.com/AbuseReport
What service are you using for email on your domain?
Thanks Nate, yeah I figured it looked a bit phishy too, reported it. I'm still using GoDaddy Workspace for email, been with GD a long time and never got around to upgrading or moving it to something newer, if it ain't broke, etc...
I'll urge you to consider one of the modern platforms like Office 365 or G Suite to get the latest features including productivity and security.
Make sure you have an SPF record on the domain which helps prevent email spoofing.
It looks like this should be the appropriate record.
