Is this a scam? I am disabled and would love to work at home, but the "processing payments" part raised a red flag for me.

I tried looking up the IP address at various sites, but nothing gave me a clue as to where this is from. Even gmail complained about the from address in the header.

I also see where they are using gmail as their address. I've seen on this site that this is a 'gotcha', too.

Thanks for any help.

Yes, it's a scam, they claim to be from England, but they are actually emailing you from a scam hotspot known as, Romania, their IP address is:

89.40.190.99 = Romania

This is what's known as a representative scam, they are very common scams and often seen from the career builder site, it works like this, they send you cheques to cash, saying they are from clients overseas, they tell you to keep 10% as your commission and send 90% back to them.

The way banks work, when you deposit a cheque, the amount of the cheque will go on your balance, banks are duty bound to make funds available to customers before the cheques actually clear, so some time later (it can be months, or up to a year later in some cases) after you have withdrawn the money from your account and sent it to the scammer, your bank will call you in to explain that the cheque you deposited was a fake one, you are now left to pay your bank back the full value of the cheque you deposited and the money withdrew, you face having your account frozen, probably facing arrest and questioning about money laundering and passing fake cheques, some victims have been jailed due to this type of scam.

Take a look at this page and the diagram on it, it explains the scam and other mule scams similar to it:
