No, that had nothing to do with gmail. It never went through gmail.

I thought GMail would scan for all suspecious emails,
and according to logical something that arrived into my GMail, with
"From: al4321@xxxxxxxxx" - my email address, but never sent from my
account is spoof.

Why?

I have multiple email domains that I use for different purposes. Company, open source activities, several project-specific ones, private, also even a googlemail.com that I rarely use. (Please note: not different mboxes in one domain, but different *domains*.)

When I send email, I do so all the time from my own workstation, using my own mail server, and -- of course, using all those domain names, as the context requires. So, of course it might happen that a valid email from acm.org or googlemail.com did is not sent by their respective mail servers.
