Look at the Received: lines:

Received: from mail.sidac.co.jp (dns.sidac.co.jp [])
        by oss.sgi.com (8.11.2/8.11.3) with SMTP id f68KIuV15580
        for <linux-xfs@xxxxxxxxxxx>; Sun, 8 Jul 2001 13:18:56 -0700

This spam originated from 06-073.081.popsite.net and was relayed through
dns.sidac.co.jp to oss.sgi.com.
I already sent a complaint to abuse@xxxxxxxxxxxx
