I think if it's a virus it could still fake sender address regardless
of whether it comes from trusted networks or authenticated clients. I
think if it is smart enough to be able to relay through your server,
it would at least be smart enough to attempt forging the sender
address. Same applies to spam or banned files that are created by
spambots/malware or whatever.
