Obviousl, thi is embarrassing, but as you agree, you're not at fault for RECEIVING an email with whatever content. People really need to learn toat no e-mail, facebook comment or Tweet is guaranteed to remain secret, and one should comment in such forms as though it would be reprinted on the office bulletin board.
I don't see why you should, or even how you could, apologise to the offended colleage - YOU didn't do anything wrong. Apologising will suggest that you did. If she mentions it to you make it clear you disapprove of what happened and wish it hadnt. Otherwise, maybe a discrete silence.
