Spam Prevention
Hmm maybe I'm simplifying this too much, but couldn't spam be reduced/prevented by disallowing forged headers?

It's far too easy to create a custom header that overrides the actual header. Why can't the mail server developers prevent this :( ...then at least you could track the senders. I just got this:
