People forging their From: addresses

	I have the following situation:

A guy from one of AT&T's relays pretends he is oneaddress@localhost. He
sends TONS of mails to every possible address at AOL. Since a lot of those
addresses don't exist, AOL sends to postmaster@localhost all the error
messages. This is not exactly spam, but it's annoying because I get tons
of replays from AOL users that is spamming, which is NOT true.

	What can be done in a situation like this? Complaining about it to
AT&T about their poor relaying is not a solution, I think.
