Some of our more networking/server savy members may come up with other ideas or even correct mistakes on my part.
After reading your post, I decided to check my sent mail folder, and what I found was actually very interesting....

The email was indeed in my sent mail folder, however next to the name, it had that little security warning from Gmail that states "This message may not have been sent by (my email)" Then it shows a completely different name than mine, followed by my email address in captions. Very interesting indeed, I'm not quite sure what to make of it...
