   Why is it more anonymous than spam that is being relayed? The From
address of relayed spam is forged anyway. At least here you get the IP
address of the spammer (if he did not forge it). From this 'whois' gives you who's behind that IP address, the  name of the
contact, ...

   It seems to come from a University, btw. If it were to come from an
ISP then an email to that ISP would work just fine. They know exactly
who uses what IP address at any time for obvious accounting (some still
charge per hour) and accountability reasons. So it should be just as
easy for them to terminate that account.
