Why would she ?
If spammers harvest your email address, they also use it to send out mails with.
Faking a sender email address is the easiest thing you can do.

Getting "undeliverable" returns in your inbox isn't proof your account was hacked, it merely means a mailserver is not filtering out the spam first.

You hardly get any such "undeliverable" mails anymore these days as admins have reconfigured their servers not to autoreply to spam anymore.
