And that header may not tell you who the malicious individual or group is.
If they have found an SMTP server with an open relay, which is how most SPAM
is transfered anyway...

Personally I recieved three of the Jeff Lawson infected e-mails over the
night. NAV for Exchange works pretty well....

you cannot rely on the from header to know who sent bugbear... the ONLY
header you can trust to tell you where it came from is the very first
Received line that contains the machine name and ip address of the
sender... this very first received line cannot be forged as it is put in
by your mail server...
