I meant that the domain being supplied by the sender is fake in that the
connection is not actually coming from that domain. The domain itself may
very well exist, but does not map to the IP address of the initiator of
the SMTP connection to your Sendmail.

See http://www.agh.cc.kcl.ac.uk/unix/archive/checking/latest/ - this can a split local and external addresses and blocks attempt to use local names by external senders (and many more). May be it is a good selection. I use it 3 months, ORBS test - OK.
