By far the best solution is to configure your SMTP server not to accept 
unauthenticated mail from domains that it serves.

If this isn't possible in your setup, have a look at the __TO_EQ_FROM 
rule in the standard ruleset. This is only used in other meta rules, but 
you could experiment with scoring it, making sure you exclude any 
genuine messages that you might send to yourself, for example:


-- Over 5000 webcams from ski resorts around the world -
-- Translate your technical documents and web pages    -
