You can get another person's IP address by changing the options on your email address to the full header format so that it even displays where the email originating from. The IP address that shows the portion that is labeled originating is the one that belongs to the person that sent the email. You can learn how to trace IP addresses by following the instructions on

When you send an email, that information is encoded in the email itself. So if you didn't send it, then someone else got access to your account. Potentially there is probably some sort of program that can change IPs or something, but I don't know anything about that sort of thing, and seems like a lot of trouble for someone to go to over 1 email.
