Lots of networks use RFC1918 space _internally_, as iispp.com obviously 
does between their webmail server and their SMTP relay.  It's no more 
suspicious than your own ISP's use of 10.0.1 between their MX and the 
mailstore to which your message was delivered.  Recognizing this is pretty 
basic to reading SMTP headers.
