A spammer (a bot, usually) will just about always fake a sender  
address - often they will just use an address they have sent spam to  
(esp. if it's on the same mail service), assuming it is more likely to  
be good and won't be on a block-list: they do not have to have any  
access at all to your account. You can't stop that at all, just like  
with meat-mail, tho it is automated and massive. Usually they'll  
change the sender address after a while to avoid blocking, so this  
should stop on its own (the email equivalent of a cold).
