It is probably not emails from The Bat (which is simply an email client AFAIK), but spam senders who are spoofing its headers?

If you do want to block all emails from this client (not advisable) or want to help SpamAssassin pick them up as SPAM, you may want to look at writing your own SpamAssassin headers rule to score them as SPAM.

I won't go into specifics (as personally I am not sure that this is a good idea), but will point you in the direction of a simple guide to writing your own rules:
