The line above is probably giving you spammer's source IP (or http proxy --- some SP use trans. fwd. proxies).

Analyse that IP address and other similar spammers. If the region is not important blacklist the block in

Or create a heuristic(s) that states: if mail is from Yahoo, contains a single line and from that IP block, then junk it. You'll need to test and make sure it doesn't have much FP.

not capable physically.

Example of such an email is here:

I fully realize that these emails are difficult to trap, but, perhaps,
I am missing some innovations in the spamfighting field? Any idea how
I can kill them?
