before any email can be hacked without the person’s information then it
must be an IP configuration thats i recommend you use a strong VPN to
secure your activities online  like https://www.hidemyass.com/vapn/r20594/

    Almost any scenario is possible. Please provide the related headers so we can see if any of it is likely.

    Anything is possible. I have got emails from a friends address at times I know they would be sleeping. Someone may have hacked their address book, or your e-mail may be spoofed. Take a look at the e-mail headers if possible. Where is the e-mail account located work, Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo or other? If possible, find a clean PC and change your password for your e-mail account.
