This is not the correct method. Most of the times (99/100) the "From" header
in a spam email is munged. That means, the correct owner of the email
address is not the same person who sent you the spam email. FWIW, you might
even get spam emails with a from address of your own. This is basically
called "Joe jobbing" (see google for more information).
