Contact law enforcement. See what they can do. You might be able to track things down, but it will take a lot of time. Server names and IPs are spoofed so you'll need copius logs with connection informations and specific time emails were sent\received. Most likely some unwitting person's PC or unsecured email server is being used as a mail relay, which is always hard to track.

If this isn't REALLY bad, then I would wait for it today. Maybe check into ex-employees with a solid technical background who left, shall we say, on less than favorable grounds.

I agree, as a lot of times, it's an inside job by a former employee

who was disgruntled and has a vendetta against the company for whatever reason.
