SPAM from same account

Email Servers

We are running, windows 2003, Mail Enable Pro v3.53, Plesk

On quite a few email accounts we are getting some very odd SPAM messages.

~ They seem to be from the email account that they are being sent to.
~ They are marked as SPF neutral.
~ I am trying to block these emails.
~ I can't work out how to block these emails from the SMTP connector Properties.
~ Under SMTP Security we have:
      [check] Reject mail if sender address is from an invalid domain
      [check] Authenticated senders must use valid sender address
~ Example 1 is a SPAM email that we want to block, Examples 2 and 3 are legitimate emails that want to let through.
Example 1, SPAM
