Is that the entire email in the pastebin link above?  I ran it through 
my SA platform and it's missing a few headers.


Since it doesn't have a valid opt-out, I would report it to SpamCop, 
report it to's abuse if SpamCop doesn't already, and add 
a blacklist_from * entry.

If you start seeing patterns of repeating emails, then a local content 
rule and Bayes training would be the best option.  Maybe get these into 
the nightly masscheck so others can work on some rules to go into the 
default ruleset.
