I recall discussions either here or on some other list where spammers were 
using multiple From: header entries to try to get past.  One would have 
your address, or at least your domain, which they hoped would be the one 
to show up in your mail client so you would trust it, and hopefully, the 
filter would look at the other one so it wouldn't block the email because 
it was from your domain.
