While spammers often forge entries in the mail header, it seems the most likely source is:
X-Originating-IP: [63.164.145.85]
The 'whois' record shows this IP (range) assigned to Kinkos. If you have gripe, contact [email protected].

Traceroute shows:
...
13 sl-bb20-fw-12-0.sprintlink.net (144.232.11.17) 75.937 ms 74.736 ms 75.610 ms
14 sl-dr20-dal-15-0.sprintlink.net (144.232.19.53) 76.819 ms 75.906 ms 76.043 ms
15 65.163.246.10 (65.163.246.10) 75.532 ms 75.030 ms 75.818 ms
16 63.164.145.4 (63.164.145.4) 75.753 ms !X * *
17 63.164.145.4 (63.164.145.4) 77.115 ms !X * *
Is "Dallas" a clue?

Beyond that, it's not evident whether or not this IP address, along with the date/time of the email, can be traced back to a specific user. (For example, it could be the IP address of a NAT router.)
