Such an applications already exists. Look at:
from the description:
Abuse is a simple program which will help you fight back spam.
It will "read" any e-mail header, go on-line and check NICs, open
relay DBs and black-listed IP ranges to discover the address of
the abuse-desk you should write to.
Further it will tell you if the sender's IP address is an open
relay or is blacklisted as a spam source. Simply right click on
a desired e-mail and Abuse will automatically extract headers and
either print the relevant abuse-desks or directly e-mail them a
letter of complaint (LART).
