If you get unwanted email ('spam') from addresses at most email providers, you can report it.

In most cases, the provider will want a copy of the message with full headers. The procedure for accessing the full header information varies depending on the email program or service you are using. Refer to your program's help file or web mail instructions for details.

The header provides information that can be used to analyze where ate message originated and how it was sent. Google how to analyze email headers for information.
