You could greylist by IP of the email addresses, this way you block spoofed 
addresses.  I know that this is not a cbm-hacker topic, but I can provide 
specific details if anyone wants them on how to do this with a sendmail server.

btw - I do not get any spam as you have described, but is 
greylisted on my mailserver, dynamically, and can only come through the one 
location at a time.  There is a delay when the IP's change, but usually 
this is not an issue.
