Your pastebin example didn't show the "last external" sending IP. Could 
have have been there orginally, but was expunged from this sample? Could 
there have also been a link in the body of the message that was likewise 

it would be nice to be able to check those against respected low-FP DNSBLs.

Or, if the clickable link really wasn't in the original message, then 
this particular example was probably a rare malfunctioned spam that will 
be of no benefit to the spammer, and would then probably not be worth 
investigating since the spammer then has no incentive to keep sending 
these types.
