If someone used your email address to send out Such spam,  and the recipients tried to send it to abuse@... then this is typically what you would see.  They never need to get near your account to do so since the eMail smtp protocol does not require any authentication of the real sender's address.

Your account has most likely been compromised. Reset your password and secret question to something new and complex and run a virus scan.
