what do you do with detected relay attempts?

I have just realised that I wasn't getting postfix relay block alerts 
under my new postfix set up (on a small Email list system).  So I've 
twigged the right setting and am now getting the very satisfying 
messages like:

 In:  MAIL FROM:<smtp2001soho@yahoo.com>
 Out: 250 Ok
 In:  RCPT TO:<controller110@aol.com>
 Out: 554 <controller110@aol.com>: Relay access denied

which, of course, has the IP address and sender name in the subject 
line of the alert to me.  A quick check confirms that they are 
congruent so I think I should report it to the system.  I currently 
report all spam I get to abuse.net and spamcop.net as I want the 
anonymity I think they given my reports.  Now I'm not sure of the 
best way to report something like the above.  What do other people
