You know she used your email address/email account to send the email. You know your husbands email address. So..........I would contact your email provider and ask to speak with the security department (you might have to send them a email) , explain to them your problem, you might even have to show them probable cause for them to speak any further with you, that is why you have a copy of the police report.
See if by chance they have access to a record of when and where that particular email was/when sent from.
Then on your husbands email provider, do the same thing. This whole idea may not work, but its worth a shot.
If she would have sent a virus though email, lawenforcement officials would be all over her and they would definently find out all the details, so no one cant tell me this is impossible, its just a matter of, will they cooperate with you in getting you all the details.
Also, call the ISP that provided access to the email that day and explain to them the situation, they maybe able to point you in a direction better than me.
I hope that helps some.
Also, you might want to change your password to something really difficult, if you have not already.

As I said before, I'm not nearly as smart as you are.....and I don't understand why my ISP should be contacted? Do you mean because she used yahoo.com to forge an email ? Thanks again!

The email itself will show who sent it.
And the part where you say most people just enter whatever name they decide, that would go in your account profile. You can edit that, but when you send a email, you cant change the name to whatever email
name you like, unless you change the name profile in the account first.
If made up a entire fake account under Yahoo that could be a great therory.
You got a mess on your hands.
