No, that's just how spammers work. Often the From address is made up of real names and real domains re-combined.

Sometimes I wish I could just give up e-mail altogether. <sigh>
If it's a matter of clients sending files to you you might try other communication methods that allow file sending directly. you could keep in touch with clients via Instant Messaging, IRC, or even via a microblogging service like Pownce which also allows sending files. None of those would completely replace email but they would give you a very direct communication channel with clients.

Explore the options - email isn't all there is!
