    Get a copy of the email from the spamee , and look at message headers (in the message envelope); it could indicate an originating IP Address. If that IP does not belong to your carrier (or your home network ISP, if you were using wifi), that is proof that the message did not originate from your phone.

    Spammers may use your email address in the From: line, but send the spam from elsewhere.

    Change your email password and take a close look at what apps have email access. Chances are it's not a major developer. Usually (but not always) it's the wallpaper, music finding, or ringtone apps.
