Subject: how to clean up after spam?

I've just discovered that someone for whom I had set up a mail alias
under one of my domains has been using it to send out spam to a large
number of mailing lists. The mail alias was used to forward mail from
this domain to his local ISP mail name.

I've told him spam is not acceptable, of course, and removed the mail
alias, but is there anything else I need to do?

I don't know whether this guy has done enough that someone would go to
the trouble of mail bombing him, but if he has, is there anything I
can do to prepare for it? 

Thanks for any suggestions
