Hi,

I use a software named "Xenu" to identify a provider from its URL but I
cannot identify him from his sole IP adress or rmail information.

Do you know a free sofwtare able to do that ?
From exmaple, to identify the host sending  this kind of spam by email ?

Info found in the mail details :
AToulouse-156-1-74-131.w86-196.abo.wanadoo.fr
(AToulouse-156-1-74-131.w86-196.abo.wanadoo.fr [86.196.161.131])
Message-Id:

NB. The IP 86... gives only time out and the sender has changed his email
(From) to reflect mine via a routing to ambard@mdc.edu

Could someone give me some hints to try intercepting this guy and warn his
provider ?

I am not sure that this mail is associated to virus as Kasperky doesn't give
me any alert.

Thank you

http://www.gena01.com/win32whois/ does the above, but automated, and
contacts a lot more of these WHOIS services, not only RIPE.

Use the output, especially the option "get abuse info" (which retrieves
information from www.abuse.org). It doesn't always help, but makes it a
bit easier.

BTW: We Germans call Wanadoo "Spamadoo". Guess why...
