Most likely someone sent spam with your address as the sender or return address. The other thing is, it could be a scam and contained exploit code that either made it through and infected you, or was stripped by the ISP in transit. Most likely, was just spam using your address as the sender. This can happen for multiple reasons. Either your system was compromised and they raided your address book, a friend or family member who has you in their address book was compromised and they stole the info from their address book, some website you used and registered with shared your info or was compromised, or you just have it exposed somewhere online that it was harvested from such as Facebook or your own personal site.

Too many possibilities, but again, probably just spam. The other possibility is you really sent something somewhere, maybe to a wrong address, and they sent a mailer-daemon not found/dead letter message back to you.

If i were you I would change the password for the email account, run a full virus scan on my system just to make sure, the system is not infected and lastly update the machine with the latest patches.

Yea, I always think it's good to be on the safe side anyway. Do you always check the SSL certificate of every site that you ever type anything into and always check the domain in the address bar etc. etc.

Having said that, the moment you see your browser displaying an SSL Certificate warning, you should think twice before clicking on the link "Continue on anyway".

Check the security certificate and make sure its a legit one, by reading what's one it, if you see anything that does not match to the website you are vising. Leave the site immediately or don't proceed at all.
