1. They guess it. Spammers send 1,000,000 emails to different addresses, by the law of big numbers some of them are valid addresses.
2. You asked Web site to forward interesting article to your friend. You gave your friend's email address to Web site. This site sold it to marketers.
3. Your friend's computer got virus. Virus emailed his address book to spammers. His address book had your email address.
There are many more ways to harvest email addresses.
