So i sent a zero fee transaction using bitcoin-QT. As i remember if my coins are old (and they are) i can send them without a fee.

However when i checked blockchain.info, there is a small amount 0.0104xxx btc  that was sent to an strange address. So my total output amount was the amount i sent + this amount. My bitcoin-qt didnt even show this.

Can someone explain what happened?

Edit: I checked my wallet balance, it only sent out the amount that i set. So where did this small amount 0.0104xxx come from and to? Could this address be generated by my wallet? hence my balance doesnt show this amount?

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. EWallets such as Coinbase are like banks -- a central organization has complete control over your money. You shouldn't put much money in EWallets.

There's your problem. Don't look at that site.

Correct, as the previous two responders have pointed out.
