I may just do that this evening. I e-mailed the address in the "Return-Path:" portion of the header. The address is legit and the person there replied back to me. I sent him a copy of the spam I got earlier today with a short explanation of what's going on (and while I was typing the message to him, I received yet another spam message). For all I know the person in the return-path knows or even /is/ the owner of the account causing the problem.
At any rate, his e-mail to me indicated he is concerned.
