If you want to be truly pro-active, you can forward the
email (with headers) to the abuse address usually listed
on the home page of any company that's experiencing
phishing attacks. You can also 'cc' the ISP that originated
the spam. If may be drops in the bucket, but it's the
only way to try to remind ISPs of what's happening
on their networks.
