even if you could track it... they would probably just spoof the IP anyway...  
you best best is to use a spam filtering solution or client..

you can look at the headers of the email to get some more information, but most likely it is spoofed...

We have a Barracuda Spam firewall (hardware) - We have blocked over 1,000,000 emails this year alone.  You will more likely then not, not be able to track where the email is coming from like Dbergert said due to many reasons.

What would you do if you could trace where the email is coming from?  What are you trying to accomplish? - stop email from them?
