Yes, but if you get that fake address quickly enough, it gives you a very
good chance to block this particular mailing on your MTA. Of course,
it won't work if the spammer generates unique, fake From for *each*
copy of the spam, but it doesn't seem to be a very common practice.
Just to clarify, we consider adding Return-Path, From and Reply-To
addresses. Final decision is left to the admin.
