You do know it's very easy to spoof email addresses?

That's not the point.

I can easily send
an email to the police saying im a terrorist but with
your email ?

That's not the point either.

If you have software that is supposed to be able to
determine that an e-mail address is *real* and block all
others, and e-mail with *fake* addresses still get
through (or otherwise appear where they should have been
prohibited from appearing), then something is broken.
Either the filtering software is broken or the
destination (where the e-mail appears) is accessible for
editing by unauthorized persons.

If it is that easy to separate the good from the bad, then
why is is so difficult to separate the desired messages
from the spam?

Spam often uses *real* e-mail addresses - not the *correct*
ones, but real nonetheless.
