I have now received a batch of 30 for an incident in mid November.
This is basically spam as all it is the original spam attached to an empty
email with no explanation of why it is being sent to us.
I am probably just going to block AOL's IP's at our mail serve ror further
back at the routers.

Customer signs up with stolen card.
uses the mail() function to send spam.
We find him, but in the 2 hours ince he has flooded us with spam.
We could disable the mail() function but would lose all our customers.
All of those hosts you quote will have exactly the same problem.
