    I found a bunch of spam messages on http://spamassassin.apache.org/publiccorpus/ and want to drop them into the mail directory to be processed to see how 4PSA Spam Guardian handles them.

    Can anyone tell me where I would put these messages on my linux server for QMail and Spam Guardian to process them or is that possible?

    I put a few into var/qmail/mailnames/domain/userid/Maildir/new but all they did was appear in the inbox and did not go through any spam scanning that I know of.

    Also, are there any known places to add yourself to a spam list so that you will get spam immediately?

    Let me know your thoughts.

    You can send an email with this one line in the body message ..


    If your anti-spam detects it and mark it as spam then it's working ..

    Ok I tried that and it worked.

    2 questions.
    1. Why in the world does that look like spam to Spam Guardian?
    2. Is there a way to do what I want to do so I can see how many messages it catches and how many it doesn't?
