I've got a client who recently got joe-jobbed by a spammer (my client's
email address was used as the "From:" address by the spammer).
While I don't *think* it did any real harm, he's pretty upset about it.
I told him there isn't any way to prevent the spammer from using any
email address as the return address, and he understands.
One thing I'm wondering, though, is about SPF (Sender Policy Framework,
not Sun Protection Factor :) ) on their sites. Does it seem to do any
good? Or aren't enough people on the receiving end validating with it?
Your opinion is welcome!

Re: Anyone use SPF?
I've added SPF to my site (if I've done it right, that is ):
http://www.openspf.org/ has a wizard + record syntax + tools
No idea how effective it is, though (wrt Joe Jobs).
 I do pass the E-mail based test http://www.openspf.org/Tools
