    The only thing that comes to mind is that you might have accidentally pressed the SPAM button instead of the Delete button when you were trying to remove those mails from your Inbox. Pressing SPAM adds the sender's email address to your Blocked Addresses list.

    In case you haven't yet unblocked them (or don't know how),

    go to Options > Block Addresses , then select your friends' addresses and click Remove Block.
