This indicates the spammer is entering your email address and probably a number of others in the Bcc: field when addressing the message.
All email addresses placed in the Bcc: field do not appear and are invisible to all recipients. The only addresses that are visible to all recipients are those placed in the To: or Cc: fields.
Copied from How .Mac filters spam.
The .Mac mail servers filter spam, but some unwanted messages may still get through.

In addition, see Why was I "spammed" at my .Mac Mail address? which applies to any email account and How HTML Email Messages Relate to Unsolicited Commercial Email ("spam") which applies to any email client such as the Mail.app.
