    This mail has come from a mail account from my own domain, when I dont have any accounting@xyz.com email account.

    they probably read your whois data, then just spoofed the email address , look at the email headers to see where it really came from

    edit : you didnt open that file did you ?

    The whois is protected and there was no files attatched,
