It's a phish people.

I've received several of these for zimmy.co.uk, they lasted about a
week, then they stopped.  I would suggest waiting this out, if after a
week or two they haven't ceased then I would suggest contacting the ISP
from where these EMails are originating.

As for the blacklisting of your host, contact them and inform this is a
phishing scam; this is better delegated to blacklists such as Netcraft
rather than SORBS or the like.
