    I have learned to read headers so I have an idea of where the spam
    comes from.

    When reporting it to the provider should I only include the headers
    or the whole spam?

    The problem I find is that it is being sent as a HTML rather than
    text, so if I include it in the email it will look as HTML code.

    When sending spam to the source; ISP, News Service Provider, both ISP & News Service
    Provider, etc., send the Full Headers and Body of the spam.

    If you don't have an abuse email address, you get one here...
