Look at your mail header. This is something you are going to have to learn on your own because good spammers will spoof there address a few times but the right one is in there you just need to figure out how. I can't tell you because it is different each time, but after a while you will figure it out. (It is easier for me because I run my own mail server and they can't hide behind the logs). Once you figure out the real address go to a shell and type
whois 220.127.116.11 # 123 being the real IP such as 18.104.22.168 <fake IP
then it will tell you who their ISP is then take a copy of the header, the original email, and with the whois report and email it to there ISP.
If you get 3 from the same people that is illegal and they can be prosecuted. IF it doesn't comply with the CAN SPAM ACT they can be prosecuted or at the very least a good ISP will drop them.
(Under the CAN SPAM ACT they can spam you legally but they have to comply with the rules which they never do so this is not usually an issue.)
example of some rules.
must have an opt out clause (They usually do but either they phish for your valid email address with it or it doesn't work at all) I never use this feature even if believed to be real.
If advertisement must say it in subject line.
If x-rated must state in subject line
I get mortgage refi ads with X-rated subject lines -groovy-
These are just a few, but I can honestly say I have never received one spam that complied with the act.
I know this doesn't answer completely but there is some learning involved hopefully it gets you moving in the right direction.

I wonder how much money Viagra and Mortgage refi places would loose if they advertised legitimately. Really do we need to buy viagra online?Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph.
