Pick and choose your battles. There's some people you just have to be nice to, especially at a job you're trying to keep.
This is why you DO NOT mess with IT . We have our ways of getting our revenge. Plus why would you lose your shit because it's taking a while to get your email account created? That's really bad form man. The average user (that would be you OP) doesn't realize that IT is normally the busiest dept and that your request isn't the only thing they have to do
Just like with food, you don't mess with people who handle important things.
Check the IP address from which they were sent? Then explain yourself. It seems like it should be worked out since it is a professional setting...
19， it's frustrating when you can't do your job because someone else screws up, while the boss shoving deadlines one after another in your face. And i agree with you, lashing out at someone because of that is definitely not the way to go, escalate the issue to your and her supervisors, let them deal with it. OP should also get to the bottom of this, tempering other people's email account is a serious offense.
She could have sent way worse stuff that would get you fired, consider yourself lucky you didn't lose your job

I wouldn't be surprised if it were the SysAdmin who did this to get back at you. I know it's frustrating when it takes a long time to get stuff set up, but losing your shit with her is NOT the way to go. Can you prove that you were not using your computer or your account at the time?
You've not been trained sufficiently to live in abject fear of the IT thugs. If they can't nail your ass to the wall with the things you actually do with your company's computer systems, they can always generate such a death warrant on you. "Oh, shall I tell our boss of the copious amounts of kiddie porn you've downloaded on company time?" Your tools to deal with IT are limited to: begging, groveling, flattery and bribery.
