It's probably just that someone has hijacked your email account to send the spam email, and has not actually gotten into your email on your Macbook Pro. I had a similar thing happen to me with my email address yesterday, though it was to random email addresses that were bounced back to me. Happens on the server side, not on your computer.

I get this too. Every now and then I'll get a "System undeliverable" to an address I've never heard of, or my email address is used to spam me! Brilliant!

Oh...and only pretty girls use Macs...
