    Default Spam

    I know this will sound strange but does anyone have any ideas on how to attract spam to thewhiztest@gmail.com so i can test some antispam software or where i can get hold of a large amount of spam

    Any ideas would be appreciated

    Rather than opening up your account for spam, why not just write your own "spam" and send it to yourself. By changing the subject heading and message body each time, you should be able to figure out how sensitive it is.

    Just subscribe to every dodgy site you can think of on the net. These places, while bombarding you with their own rubbish, sell your address off to other dodgy sites and it won't take long before you start getting a lot of it.
