clients...senders...helo... from the logs and the mailings. Usually in 
the bulk commercial 'legitimate' spammers there entire system is 
configured correctly, as are their headers, to avoid spamassassin and 
common mail screenings.
 From that you slowly whittle them down.
 From this I have found certain bulk mailers, especially political and 
real estate, have a certain grouping of outgoing relays...like 
'ala'mail.net, 'ala'mode.com, vocus.com, vocsmail.com, etc...

and once I got all the others out it was very evident based on the 
layout of the mail who is sending it...basically like 4 or 5 types... 
Kinda cool to start seeing the patterns.
