I  can't resist pointing out that Outlook (when displaying messages grouped by conversion topic) displays the Thread-Topic header as the conversation topic - which can be entertaining when others forward a mail, deleting the body and changing the subject.  I presume that was the title of the original spam and not part of your regular correspondence ;)

Seriously though, why don't you just post the headers & maillog I wouldn't have thought the actual content of the spam makes much difference.
