The best thing you can do is setup postfix postscreen with as many
RBLs properly weighted to block the marjority of spoofing senders.
This has been documented on this list so search the archives.

Second is setup an extensive list of whitelist_auth domains that are
commonly spoofed (ups.com, fedex.com, dhl.com, etc. -- ebay.com
and paypal.com are already in the default rules) then train your Bayes
and adjust scoring on existing rules to block the spoofed spam.

Depending on your user base and where your located, you can use
language detection and country codes to add points to your SA score
with ok_languages and the RelayCountry plugin.

There is no hard and fast way to detect spoofing so just try to block
it in SA just like any other spam.  Try to reject as much as you can at
the MTA level so SA only has to check a very small percentage of the
mail connection attempts.
