It is not the case. You may evan have no return-path at all.
You should better fook at the "Fom:" line.
By the way, the from line can easily be forged to anything.
You may also have a look at the "Received:" lines. There is one per hop 
between sender and receiver. Note that tehre are some variations on what you 
can find in the "received:" lines. The lines are in reverse order of hop 
traversal. You should find your own ISP on the first line.
