Almost all spam has forged headers.  The domains are real and valid but are
being used without the knowledge or permission of the owners (this is
clearly illegal but the authorities refuse to act).  There is no reason
such mail should be delivered.  Implementing Sender Permitted From
<http://spf.pobox.com/> would put a stop to this.
