No their is nothing you can do. It is called spoofing as most spam email is. That is one of the popular viruses going around now, I forgot the name of it.

This is what I have suggested before and it seems most people agree we need to fix one simple problem with that archaic email system, address verification. A reverse MX type of idea that would verify who the sender is. I posted this in the General Forum a while back after a bunch of us were thinking of how we could help fix the problem.
