I think SPF does something similar to this - you specify using a
special DNS record on your domain what mail servers are permitted to
send mail for your domain. If your system receives a message from a
mailserver that is not listed in the From: address domain's SPF
record, it will do something with it.

'Something' can be dropping it, flagging it, giving it an extra point
in spamassassin, etc.
