There are dozens of worms and viruses in the wild which choose sender and 
recipient addresses from address books, files on disk, etc., or just 
create a random address. This is nasty for the faked sender, but nothing 
you can do against.

Some viruses and worms even install Spam relay services on the attacked 
systems now, so almost anything is possible.
