First: sorry for my english :)
In the last  days we are receiving a lot of "System Administrator Underivable" messages and
we suppose "someone" use ours e-mail addresses for spamming;
The question is : exist a procedure for filtering these messages using exchange 2003 server ?

We attach a message header sample where (my.mail.server.com is the short of our domain name and xxxyyyxxx.org is the generic remote SMTP server):

If you use any email filtering software, you need to block external internet email from your domain and then add your internal email servers to the accepted email servers list.

This will stop all spoofed mails from the internet using your domain name but will not cause any problems sending external emails from internal.

Hope this helps.
