Did I send that? (reading postfix logs)

Hey everyone,

I'm just scanning through my /var/log/mail.log and am confused by some of
the entries...I should note that I'm on a laptop, connected to a home
network (no firewall, but no other people at home right now).

Aug 29 15:07:00 debian postfix/smtp[3728]: 8B6FB3A5E2:
to=<71mogv@yahoo.com>, relay=[], delay=1, status=sent
(250 Ok: queued as EA01E26226)

Here's another:
Aug 29 13:53:51 debian postfix/smtp[3562]: 07C353A654:
to=<glang_kg@tlab.ch>, relay=[], delay=1, status=sent
(250 Ok: queued as 4DF482625C)

I have no idea who this email is... I use mutt for my email client so I
never think twice about viruses. Any idea what I'm seeing in my log
files? I don't have an ssh server or telnet running on my machine so I'm
not sure how someone would get "in" to be relaying spam through my laptop.
(Mostly I'm just ignorant to the ways of spammers and viruses though.)
