    Default I want Spam, loads of it

    I've set up four email addresses:
    • s.bob@test.genevawoods.com
    • s.jim@test.genevawoods.com
    • s.frank@test.genevawoods.com
    • s.mike@test.genevawoods.com

    If possible I want them spammed as much as possible. If there was a way to get 10000 messages a day through them that would be wonderful. I want to tweak SpamAssassin and test my server load as well.

    Anyone know of a way to automatically sign up for hundreds of garbage email services? I know running around posting my emails on dozens of boards and forums is a start. Also manually signing up works, but honestly I'm not sure where since I make it a habit of not doing those sorts of things.

    I know it's a backwards way of thinking, but It would be a good demo of Zimbra.

    Go try for a free iPod/TV/etc at one of those spam sites. I won't link them.

    Sign up for a lot of yahoo accounts, and forward them to your email addresses.

    Hehe, I didn't think of it. Hotmail and Yahoo get spammed without even bothering to ask for spam.

    Note that forwarded mails from Hotmail and Yahoo are technically legitimate, since you explicitly asked for them by setting up the forward. You can use them to train the bayes filter, but they'll probably be marked as not-spam because the come from a SPF-verified source etc.

    I came up with a quick and dirty way. I'm forwarding all messages from my existing mail server. A bit more load there, but it's poo anyway.

    I'm sure 50-60k emails per hour is enough!

    LOL!

    Until such time the OP responds to that post then you have to assume it would be for legitimate purposes and not for spamming

    Yea but you have to ask yourself... what possible legitimate use could you have for sending 50k-60k emails an hour? I can't think of one...
