Spoofed address still reported as 'Friend'

Fri Jun 05, 2015 1:15 am

I sometimes receive spam that 'appears' to be from my address, but it's actually not. The Mailwasher 'From' column displays both my address and the spammer's, yet it still reports the email as from 'Friend.' If the program can tell the email is actually not from me, then why doesn't it act on that information? Here's the header of a recently received example copied from the MW Recycle Bin 'Source' tab:

I forgot to add that I want to be able to blacklist the spammer's address, but can't because I have to suspect that MW will be adding my own to the blacklist based on my comments above.
