    I received several emails, supposedly from a friend in Britain, but he never sent them. One was sent to an address he was never given by me. That's how I knew something was wrong.
    Is there a way to prevent this type of thing from happening with my Mac?

    No, there isn't a way to prevent it, and it has nothing to do with your computer. Somehow, his account was hacked and someone sent those emails from it.

    The problem doesnt seem to be from your Mac.
    But your email account yes.
