Hi!

You should create SPF record for your domain and enable sender ID filtering. Which mail server do you use?

I have SP2 installed on my Exchange 2003 server and its version is same as yours.

Just check if you have all configuration options from article available on your Exchange. You should configure mode of Sender ID filter to "Reject" if you configure your SPF record correctly.
