Why is a friend getting emails from me from email addresses I don't own?

Over the last year, a friend has sent me some messages:
1. I got an email from  you earlier which wasn't from you from (myname)0905499632@orangemail.sk.

2. I got another spammer email from you, address it came from was eamonross@bwana.biz.

3. Today: got another email from "you" at this address...  (myname)679@emirates.net.ae

Any idea why she'd be getting these? Is the problem on her side? Thanks.
