This is perfectly normal.
Google standardized the 1e100.net domain name across all of their servers
and properties to make things simple (according to them at least)
iy-in-f108 is a hostname in the email complex... no one has ever seen how
to translate what iy-in-f108 means, but if you google it you'll see that it
really is a server belonging to them.
1e100 = scientific notation for 1 googol.
