Is it possible to forward e-mail addresses on to a company or authority that is able to take action against individuals who keep sending e-mails with viruses attached?

Regards

Send the ISP a complaint which should include the message properties found in File>Properties>Details>Message Source and if there is a log from the virus protection or firewall send that as well.
Most NZ ISP's will do something fairly quickly. If it is oversea's then a complaint may or may not be actioned.

In additon to that, if you are using Outlook Express you can set up a rule so that any messages from that address are automatically deleted from the server.

To do this, select the offending message>click Message on the Toolbar>Create New Rule From Message>in the first window it is ticked by default, where the senders address is>in the second window scroll down to and tick Delete from Server>go to the bottom and click apply and OK.
